Hello translators,

As you may have seen on, the version 9 is planned for 1st of 
October, in 12 days from now.

In my last message, I told you we have published the Odoo 9.0 terms on 

I am glad to see that, in 20 days, the effort has well started and some 
of you have been actively translated the new version of Odoo.
The Dutch team has already made a tremendous effort to release a 
localised version for the final release (some may say they got 
incentives[2] ;-))

Here is the current top 10 of completion for Odoo 9.0 (reviewed terms only)
1.  84.21% (22186 terms) Dutch
2.  55.83% (14709 terms) Spanish
3.  51.29% (13513 terms) Chinese (China)
4.  50.63% (13338 terms) Portuguese (Brazil)
5.  50.56% (13321 terms) Slovenian
6.  49.83% (13129 terms) German
7.  49.38% (13009 terms) Turkish
8.  48.40% (12752 terms) Portuguese
9.  47.12% (12414 terms) Macedonian
10. 46.49% (12247 terms) French

We have also enabled the automatic synchronisation so the reviewed terms 
will be integrated into Odoo every Sunday. This way you can check the 
current progress on runbot[3].

In my last message, I warned you about the stability of the source 
terms. While it may still change before October, most of the changes 
have now been integrated. The changes will most likely be minor now.

As before, if you notice some mistakes in source terms or some unclear 
sentences that needs to be rephrased, don't hesitate to report an issue 
on the term on Transifex so that we can fix it.
Once 9.0 will be released, it will be too late to change the terms.

Happy translating !
