Odoo 17 features for localization: All You Have to Know1


Working with an ERP system becomes especially tricky when businesses have to abide by local guidelines, legal and regulatory requirements, and so on. While most ERPs tend to comply with the global standard of business practice, adjusting to localization isn’t always supported.

But with Odoo localization, you can tap into the local and global market seamlessly and meet the specific legal, regulatory, and business requirements of a particular country, region, or market.

Localization is essential for businesses operating in diverse locations because each jurisdiction may have unique tax laws, accounting practices, currencies, languages, and reporting standards.

Key aspects of Odoo localization include:

  • Tax compliance
  • Language and Currency
  • Accounting Standards
  • Reporting and Documentation
  • Payment Gateways
  • Compliance with Industry Standards
  • Localization of User Interfaces

With the release of Odoo 17 this November, you can expect some phenomenal new additions that are to take your localization game to a whole new level.

Let’s check what you can expect with Odoo 17!
