Hi all,

I have two store view in two different language.
I have duplicated the locale/en_US/template/email in locales/fr_FR/template/email.

I know I should have done it with the backend but I prefer this way cause I need to keep those file in subversion.
All my translations works fine except the orders’ ones.

I explain :
For example, in the new invoice order, a block from the sales xml layout is called. This refrers to a sales html block.
And in this block, no translation is managed.

Could someine explain me how I can translate this part in order to sent french email or english one when needed ?

Thanks in advance.
