Language of error message of simpletypes

Hi,

I've created a few simpletypes to input only digits for example. When i input letters in there, a message shows that i have to change te format the only problem is that the message is in german. Nothing wrong with german 😊 but i would rather have it in english. My browser is english and the language of my user in the SAP portal is set to english . How does Web Dynpro get its locale settings?

Much thanks,

Hugo

    Hugo,

    1. Quick test -- add the following parameter to application URL, it overwrites any language settings: sap-locale=en_US

    Open application in new browser window. Can you see English text now?

    2. Is this simpletype from Local Dictionary or from Adaptive RFC Model dictionary?

    In later case probably you have fixed settings for language in metadat connection...

      Hi Liting,

      No, im sorry. Still havent found a solution. The strange thing is that we have a previous build application which when deployed on the server DOES show english. This makes me suspect it's a configuration thingie in netweaver when building the project.

      regards,

    Hi Hugo,Valery,Armin,

    We've gone on a upgrade from SP14 to SP18 and facing this issue. Though the locale is still the same (en_GB), in all applications the standard validation error messages appear in German. Does any setting needs to be changed or is it a problem with SP18?

    FYI, I tried what Valery and Armin suggested, and the locale is determined as en_GB at runtime.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Rajit
