The first Organization will benefits from our contributing is "ODOO",......" You have to say that and don't ignore it" because:-

1- It is marketing for Odoo product as it will help Oslo to have material with Multiple languages, which will make revenue for Odoo before anyone, (Partnership, Customers, ...etc)

2- If Odoo community members don't contribute, You have to hire employees to do that, or ignore the task which mean loss revenue, market, and compitation with Others ERPs,

We always want Odoo to be first ERP product, but I had contributed with Odoo many times before, Now I have to know what is the diffrent thing that we will gain after that?

Our time is our money,
I am waiting answer including clear points,

This is great if you have time to spend on translation, please check the 

wiki for explanation on how to translate


or join the translation mailing list for updates


or get in touch directly with me if you need more information/help

benefits which we will gain after spending contributing hours with Odoo?


The translations you submit on Transifex are synchronised weekly back to 

the software, this way everybody benefits from the translation efforts.
