Setting the partner's language in RML reports

Project Description

Language path mixin
This is a technical module to restore the possibility of Odoo to print RML
reports in other languages than the user's language (for instance, the
customer's language in the case of a sale order).

Odoo 8.0 has lost that capability due to an unlucky combination of technical
aspects of the deprecated RML report functionality and the new API. While the
static content of the report is translated fine, any translatable fields will
still be rendered in the language of the user.

See for the original bug report.

This module provides a tool for developers to work around this bug in their
Python code.


With a dependency on this module, you can have any model inherit from the mixin
model in your python class definition. You can then assign your class a
*_language_path* member to indicate where to find the language into which its
reports are to be translated. See the following code example:

.. code::

class SaleOrder(models.Model):
_name = 'sale.order'
_inherit = ['sale.order', 'language.path.mixin']
_language_path = 'partner_id.lang'

In RML reports for such a model, you can then iterate over the records in the
correct language using

[[ repeatIn(objects.with_language_path(), 'o') ]]

Known issues / Roadmap

* Kudos if you find a way to do this more elegantly, preferably with a simple
bugfix in the Odoo core
