Move translation texts into different language

Hi,

We have a system with two logon languages currently - English and German. I would like to let the users log into the system using third language, which is not maintained/translated in our customer development.

Is it possible to move all the translation texts (like programs, dynpros, data elements,transactions etc) from English into let's say Polish language at once?

    You first install Polish and then you fill up the missing Polish translation from English or German

    I can see that this is done from transaction SMLT

    As a side note - we try to use standard types as much as possible (e.g. Company Code or Material Number, it's the same thing either on a standard screen or in a custom report), so that we have fewer items to translate to begin with. Also in selection screen texts we use the dictionary checkbox. It's amazing how many times we had unnecessary typed in texts there before we implemented the development standards.

    We also use custom messages instead of generic '&& & &' and those are easy to identify and translate. The forms you'll likely must translate. With a bit of discipline and organization no special tools would be needed.
