Re: Translations of l18n_extra/*.po on transifex

I have a special case for inherit

Module: "account_custom"

File: account_custom/models/
class Account(model.Models):
   _inherit = 'account.account'
   new_field = fields.Char()

File: account_custom/data/account.xml
<record id="account.xml_id"...
   <field name="new_field">value</field>

If I export the translation of "account_custom" module the values of new field where we are affecting a xml_id of other modules are not detected.
I need export the translation of "account" and extract manually these translation terms to set into account_custom/i18n/account_custom.pot

But If is a official module with this case transifex will overwrite account_custom/i18n/account_custom.pot without "account" inherited terms.

What is the best way to manage this case?
Could we use "i18n_extra" here too?

Hello Jos,

The i18n_extra terms are put there NOT to be picked by Transifex, we don't want to have Chinese translations of the Belgian chart of accounts.
We explained the process on how to translate multilangue chart of account here:
Long story short: you translate the remaining terms using your favourite tool and submit the changes via Github.
If you are not familiar with Github, you can also send me an email with the translated terms and I will do it ;-)

Is it possible to translate terms defined in l18n_extra folders ?

I was trying to correct the translation of, for example "54 - TVA sur opérations des grilles [01], [02], [03]"

This is a currently untranslated string in "odoo-enterprise/l10n_be_reports/i18n_extra/nl.po:420"

I assume that, due to the fact that these terms are in "l18n_extra" instead of in "i18n", they have not been picked up for translation on transifex.

How can we have these terms translated properly ?
