French canadian file - It's not french but German and UK (?)


I just tried to install the file xTuple.fr_ca.qm for the french canadian translation, and for a reason I can,t explain, I end up in the Setup / Master Information / Locale with Germany and UK, and no french canada. Is there a problem with this file?

Thank you very much for your help.


Hi, Karine:

The translation file does not set up the locale for you. That’s something you have to set up yourself. From within System > Setup > Locales, create a new locale for Canadian French where the language = French and the country = Canada. After you set this up and log out/log in you should see the translation. You can read more about working with translation files here:


Best regards,

Thank you so much for your help. It worked. I m not a developper, just a simple user who is starting her own business, so I greatly appreciate the support of experts like you.

Have a nice day!
