Phrase on SDS shows funny characters

Hi @all,

we are facing a strange issue:

there is one phrase in SR language that is not displayed correctly on the SDS.

It is a header phrase and the font is set to "Arial bold" so this should be no issue.

The phrase itself looks ok, the text is displayed correctly and it is no long text, not even a formating symbol is used.

This issue appears only in language SR but with all generation variants - if I try a different language everything is fine.

Has anyone made the same experiences? Any hint is really welcome !!!

Best regards,

    Hi !

    Your issue is related to WWI Font.

    From your question, it is assumed that the report symbol is formatted with font ‘x’ (Arial bold ?) and in the output, you expect the report symbol to output a text in Serbian language (SR).


    Have a look at “Font” section in your "WWI.INI" file located in your WWI installation location. It lists out the character set.

    So format your report symbol with any of the fonts mentioned here. You must get the output properly in SR language.

    Note: In phrase library, ensure the phrase translation for the particular phrase is maintained without mistake for SR language!

    Remember we use SH instead of SR for that language. Can you have a try for that?

      Hi Christoph,

      Thanks for your comments, but according to SAP regulatory content for the multilanguage phrase library, for Serbian, it's using SH to upload. And remember we checked this with the government, and it's ok as they said.

      Please advise if you have more details of this.
