I’m new to ERPNext, I’m trying to setup multilingual forms, but it doesn’t work properly.
For example, if I use standard form say for Quotation, the text “Quotation” gets translated properly - see screenshot:
But as soon as I do some customization, it doesn’t work anymore.
In custom print formats, the heading is the only field with custom HTML and Jinja templating. Therefore you have to define the parts you want translated using translation lookup with underscore in Python. In your case, wrap the heading like so:
Hello @bedo, if you’re new to ERPnext I tell you that you will always have issues like those, unfortunately it is very hard to use this software on a daily basis.
I am using it from 2017 and I am facing at least 2 new issues every day.
As for custom translations they don’t work, they work for just some fields and that’s it.
They don’t work in fields like Item Description and even not in the Taxes and Charges section.
The ERPnext team knows it very well but apparently they are not interested in implementing this.
As end user on a hosted plan in truth I am a customer, not a member of the community taking benefit for an open source software.
The truth is that I am passionate about this product but as I see it is more a software made for developers from developers.
From my side I tried to do my best financing pull requests for functionalities that were not available in production module which were released in V11 and I was very happy about it.
About translations… well I was told that they were going to be finished but indeed they aren’t…
I will make a post on my experience with the software in the last year as I am confident many users (not develoepers) should know what they would really expect being ERPnext customers.
