Printing in Chinese language in PLD reports -SAP Business One


Hi All,

We have an customer in India using SAP B1 8.82 who will be having some operations in China shortly though not production activities, but only sales activities.

For this reason they would be looking to use Sales module in China.

Subsequently transactions and printing the Orders,Invoices in PLD will be taken by users .

Since all the data will be maintained in India and it is in English localization, for users in China it will be set to Chinese language .

The customer is looking for display of Chinese data as mentioned below in transaction and reports:

1.) Is it possible in SAP B1 to display data(Item,Business partner etc..) in Chinese language by automatic conversion when the language is set in Chinese.

2.) Is it possible to print PLD report in Chinese by automatically converting the data in PLD to Chinese since all masters are maintained in English.

We have tried with below settings for Chinese language defaults:

1. Multi language support in Company details.

2. Business partner partner Language settings in General tab.

3. In report and layout manager, set the language in Chinese.

4. Set for user defaults to Chinese.

But it seems there seems to be no automatic conversion either in data on transaction screen nor in PLD print. Only the labels are shown in Chinese.

There is an option to have translated language for different fields in masters. But setting everything manually for large data will be quite a tedious job.

Also when we use the translated field in transaction like SO , it doesn't allow to modify field example: Item description unlike when it is in default language i.e. English where we can edit Item description field within SO.

Can anyone help in this matter or guide us in achieving the requirement as mentioned above.

SAP version: 8.82 PL 11.
