Master data - Language dependent descriptions


Hi experts,

we are facing the following problem. We have loaded the master data of the infoobject 0ORGUNIT in order to have the short and medium description for Purchasing Groups and Purchasing Organizations. After loading the master data, we found that the reports were showing those descriptions only for a few purchasing groups and purchasing organizations, although the source system present short and medium description for all of them.

We discovered that those org. units that were not presenting short and medium description were registered in the source system in a different language of the report language. For instance, if a org. unit was registered in english and the report shows the data in spanish, the descritpion in the report is not shown, but if I present the same report in english, the description is shown.

So, to solve this problem, we have to replicate the short and medium descriptions to all languages that we use, because our reports must be available in different languages. My question is: is it simple to implement this solution in the transfer rule? Is this the best solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance.
