I have created a search configuration using WD component FPM_SEARCH_UIBB, and have added several global saved searches in administrator mode.

I know how to maintain the translations of all other elements of the configuration except for the descriptions of the globally saved searches. How do I go about adding the translations for these saved searches?

Thanks in advance,

I found the table for the language dependent descriptions (FPM_SEARCH_DESCR), and verified that if a language specific translation is provided then it is displayed in the dropdown for users logging on in that language.

Unfortunately, I could not find a default way to write the language specific descriptions in standard. A where-used search on the table and its supporting FMs was not very helpful. I ended up writing my own quick and dirty admin program that just displays an ALV grid of saved search descriptions in different languages for a provided config ID, and allows the maintenance of the language specific descriptions.
