Fiori Launchpad - Language problems

Hi, I have upgraded the gateway to SP12 together with other app components as well as UI5 and notes required.

After this, when I access the Launchpad i notice that some tiles lost their titles and now show a general title: "App Launcher: Static". This happens if I access the launchpad in ES language, but if I access in EN, the tiles look ok. This doesn´t happend for all tiles, some are still ok in both languages showing the titles in each language.

When I go to the Launchpad Designer, on the catalog and group list on the left side, some entries have no description at all. Again, this happens in ES langauge but not in EN.

Inside the tile, descriptions are not editable in ES language, and the following message shows up (will translate as it shows up in spanish):

"Original language for this tile is "es" and your user language is "en"; so this editable property is read-only. Change your user language to treat these properties".

This didn´t happen before but only after the upgrade.

I have refreshed all sort of caches using this programs/transactions:




Does anybody know how did this happen? I think that maybe something was originally installed in one language and the upgrade or notes applied in another.

I don´t know how the standard translations got lost. I don´t want to go into translation of the apps manually as I want to recover standard translations.

Help will be much appreciated. I really don´t know where to look through.

    I had created an OSS message for this issue as well and finally got it resolved. After applying several notes, they created note 2260171 which finally solved the issue.

    Regards and thanks to all.

    Could you please make sure that notes 2154643 and 2200279 are applied in the system and then please recreate the page cache with reports /UI2/PAGE_CACHE_RESET and /UI2/PAGE_CACHE_CREATE. After this check if translation is working.

    Thanks Janos for the tips. I applied the notes indicated, and ran the programs again but the issue still remains. As per SAP help portal, the program to refresh the cache for this would be /UI2/INVALIDATE_GLOBAL_CACHES ( )

    I have anyway translated all texts in SE63 from ES to EN as well as from EN to ES and still the issue continues.

    What I could find is that after reseting/recreating the cache in EN, I was able to fix the issue in EN but it brakes in ES, and the other way arround. Nevertheless, the texts shown are the ones I translated.
