Thanks Martin for your reply.


So, should we create a pull request with updated .pot whenever we notice such case?  I had also reported another such case from account module to the issue you just closed…

The update of .pot file is a manual process. The module that has been 

changed should be re-exported to fetch the new terms.

The hr_expense module was outdated and I have fixed it in 9.0 (rev 


Transifex will soon (within the day usually) reflect the changes into 

the odoo-9 project.

The changes of source should be avoided in stable version and we try not 

do so. Unfortunately, it happens from time to time and we need to 

re-export the terms.


For version 10, we will export the terms a bit before the release so 

people can start translating and it will allow us to detect errors 

(typo, grammar,..) before the final release. I will make sure to update 

regularly the terms.
