Import language and set user preferences

The user can set their own language preferences in Odoo. This chapter helps to understand the methods to set the language for user needs.

Import Language

We can use the Import Translation feature to import a new language in Odoo. For that, open the Settings app and select Translations->Import Translations.

We can add the restatement train for the new language in the wizard by entering its name and legal system. Enable the checkbox to overwrite restated terms. Since we're importing a new language, there won't be any restated terms for the new language. To include the new language, select Import.
