Subject Re: Bilingual invoices?
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2019 03:44:43 GMT
Hello Deepak

Thanks for the feedback.  I am glad there is a way to frad the data
needed according to the language of the client.

This leads to 2 more questions:

1- in OFBiz, is there a way to have 2 description fields for each
product?  1 in french, and 1 in english (for example).  Or, does it
already have 2 fields for this?

2- when the report is being used, for a invoice for example, is there a
way to tell the system which version of the form to use, based on the
language of the client?
