Re: Formats in V8by
Elmatica AS, Luis Alberto Panozzo
Thank you, Yannick, for the pointer.
There is one such report for Dutch from the September time fram https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/2286 which I have commented upon.
Still, I am considering entering one generic report but I will have to think about the proper phrasing. Using, as you say, "date should be displayed according to user language preferences" may lead reviewers to say that is EXACTLY what is happening as date is displayed accordingly.
The real fact is that format reflected in the "language preferences" does not match the needs for the different geographies or usage groups.
And also the fact that the Thousands separator, although declared, is not used. (Tested with two versions of FR, two of ES, two of EN, NO, NL & DE ... so I guess it is quite pervasive)

We had a similar issue, I see your point. Basically we set up a company on GBP but using multicurrency we were doing invoices for Spain, and the funny thing is that the comma and the period are used differently in UK than in Spain, so the users got a bit of time getting used to the new rules.
It would definitely be a good feature to have relevant formats depending on the country, and yes you might need to file a bug for it as it has not been developed as far as I know.
I hope it gets fixed and merged to master soon :-)
All the best,

Hi, does anyone know why is it that, across the board, regardless of the chosen language (at least within the ones I have tested), the date format is the US format (mm/dd/yyyy) instead of the one that language would use?
Ditto for the decimal separator. The period (.) is the default rather than the comma which is much more common in Europe.
Yes, I know it is very simple to change via Settings but somehow it should not be a required task,
Should this be reported as a bug? I remember that in 6.1 (do not quite recall if with 7.0), once you loaded en_UK you got the European date format (just like when you loaded any Spanish translation.
