Translate custom botton on standard UI

Dear community,

I added a customer specific button to a standard SAP Screen with an enhancement option in the UI-Designer.

I defined a button text and a tooltip.

Now I would need to translate this to other languages.

Does someone know, how to do this?

I tried to transalte the standard SAP screen, but when I right-click the file in Cloud Application Studio there is no "Tanslate" option in the context menu.

I exported the translation for the whole solution, but my button text was not included.

Can anybody help?

Kind regards,

Christine Toblier

    Hi Christine,

    We had the same problem many months ago. We added a button to a the order pipeline OWL and wanted to translate it. Neither with PDI nor with key user tools we managed to do so, so we raised an incident.

    After some time and several solution propoalsfrom support (which unfortunately did not help), we finally got the reply (April, this year):


    Hello Uwe,

    We again checked with our development team and they confirmed that Language adaptation is not released for Bydesign as confirmed . Hence there is no way translation could be achieved in this case.

    As the text is added through extensibility exporer which are part the text pool as overridden text and not written to the backend of the embedded component which cannot be transaled through PDI or through UI.

    This is a current limitation and we would take up this into consideration in future releases whether this can be achieved or not.


    So I think, you face the same problem, and there is no solution at the moment. At least there was none in April.

    Best regards,
