Language Translation

Hello, We're in NW2004s BI 7.0. We have some reports that was developed and run via webtemplates thru Enterprise Portal, The portal rightnow is being used in US and Cananda/French. A user logs in to the portal and can personlize to set their language to french. When they access the BW reports from there all the Variable names and Report columns (CKFs) dont display because we dont have the French translation. I know we have to do translation on all these report texts to French if the reports need to be run for French.

I'vent done translation before, if any one who had done anything like this or who has white papers on this, pl send it to me

Pl let me know the steps and procedures i've to do to translate variable names, column headings in a report to other language.

Pl mention if there are things that need to be done settings/or Basis wise like instaling the langauge in BW.

    Hi Mayil ,

    Assuming all your headers, text etc.. are coming from the master data...

    1) Check all your Master data Characteristics and make sure you checked teh flag:

    "Text is Language Dependent".

    Since it is an existing data and reports......if you need to make a change to this flag

    could take some time/resources to change/test/implement.

    2) Create master data texts in French.....and load them into Master data tables.

    3) Talk to the Basis team in implementing the Local language settings for the Country/Users.

    Good luck, BB

      Thanks, I understand about the Master Data and making it language dependent. But the report' Variable names and column names need different ways/steps to go about translating to different language.

      Any idea about how to do that and also about the Translation in AWB in BI 7.
