A Mistranslation to Japanese in Japanese Manual is found

I found a mistranslation on the Manual concerning "Cardinality" of Foreign key.


As shown in the URL, the Phrase of "カーディナリティの左側" comes twice.

However, according to German Document,

1st --- Die linke Seite: The Meaning is "the left Side."

2nd --- Die rechte Seite: The Meaning is "the right Side."

----------------------------------------------------------
Die linke Seite (n) der Kardinalität hat folgende Bedeutung:

  • n=1:
  • Zu jedem Satz der Fremdschlüsseltabelle gibt es genau einen zugeordneten Satz der Prüftabelle.
  • n=C:
  • Es kann Sätze in der Fremdschlüsseltabelle geben, die über die Fremdschlüsselfelder keinem Satz der Prüftabelle entsprechen. Dieser Fall kann z.B. vorliegen, wenn das Feld der Fremdschlüsseltabelle optional ist, d.h. nicht immer gefüllt sein muß.
  • Die rechte Seite (m) der Kardinalität hat folgende Bedeutung:

  • m=1:
  • Zu jedem Satz der Prüftabelle gibt es genau einen abhängigen Satz.
  • m=C:
  • Zu jedem Satz der Prüftabelle gibt es höchstens einen abhängigen Satz.
  • m=N:
  • Zu jedem Satz der Prüftabelle gibt es mindestens einen abhängigen Satz.
  • m=CN:
  • Zu jedem Satz der Prüftabelle gibt es beliebig viele abhängige Sätze.

    • In Additon, English Version has no Problem concerning "cardinality."

      The left side (n) of the cardinality is defined as follows:

      • n=1:
      • There is exactly one record assigned to the check table for each record of the foreign key table.
      • n=C:
      • The foreign key table may contain records which do not correspond to any record of the check table because the foreign key field is empty. This can occur for example if the field of the foreign key table is optional, in which case it does not have to be filled.
      • The right side (m) of the cardinality is defined as follows:

        • m=1:
        • There is exactly one dependent record for each record of the check table.
        • m=C:
        • There is at most one dependent record for each record of the check table.
        • m=N:
        • There is at least one dependent record for each record of the check table.
        • m=CN:
        • There may be any number of dependent records for each record of the check table.

          Hi

          Concerns SAP R/3 from 2003. This version is out of mainstream maintenance and hence also the documentation. Could you check if this issue is still present on a more recent version?
