Problem while translating ALV column header

Hi team,

I am facing a strange problem here. There is an ALV output, where I have optimised the length of column heading.

gs_layout-CWIDTH_OPT = 'X'.

The column heading in English is showing fine.

But the problem starts when I try to translate them to Russian.

I have put English text in text symbols and translated them to Russian using the tool.

But in Russian the truncated text is shown. Sometimes it is first 21 chars sometimes it is 22 chars.

For example column heading "XML Number" should be shown as "Номер заказа клиента XML" when the user logged in Russian, but it is showing as

"Номер заказа клиента X".

I do not understand why only first 21 or 22 chars are being shown and how it can be overcome.

Can anyone help.

    Which fields of the field catalog have you used to transfer your text symbols (and how you filled all fields related to the texts)?

    Which length did you define for your text symbols?

    Did you check SAP notes, if there could be issues with other languages?

    What is your SAP GUI version?
