Language translation in Design studio


We have a requirement to show our dashboards in French for certain usergroup. The data is coming from BW and it has data in English and French. I changed the viewing locale to French from launchpad preferences after publishing the file, but I don't see the data in French. When I log into BI mode from Design studio and run the dashboard locally(Execute Locally) I see the french text. But when I execute it in BI mode(Execute on BI Platform), I still see English and not french. I am not sure what the missing piece is. Has anyone faced this before or is my approach correct?

Please assist.

BOBJ version - 4.1

Design studio version - 1.3

Backend - SAP BW

    Could you check your browser setting as shown in this blog?

    I have never done this, so I am guessing

      Hi Tammy,

      I already have French added to the language preferences in the browser in addition to choosing French as viewing locale within Launchpad preferences. I had looked at the document you linked in previously.

    Could you check whether there is a locale set in CMC for yourOLAP connection. This might override your browsers and users settings. Remove the locale in CMC and restart the APS.
