Translation of HANA DB table entries: CONTENT translation is possible?

Dear HANA experts,

We have such a use case: HANA db table including language column will be maintained in English via UI5 application. For instance, questions and possible answers will be defined in design time application in DEV then to be transported to QUAL and PROD. We need to have those questions and answers, which will be stored in HANA DB table entries and not in .hdbtextbundle files, neither in i18n files: because those are part of CONTENT and not text files. Therefore they can be only defined by end user and not developers. After exploring HANA repository translation tool, we come to the conclusion that this cannot be a solution for us. Then those language-relevant entries will be displayed in runtime application according on logon language of the user, as well as in PDF report.

Our translation team did not experience such a requirement before.Therefore I'd like to ask your advise/help whether you had such a case and how you solved it?

Thanks, regards

    I don't fully understand what you want to do here.

    What I got was

    • you want to store language dependent texts in a table
    • you want to transport the contents of the table
    • you want to translate the contents

    One option I could think of is the textimport feature for HANA DU's.

    Whenever the data should get transported, you would have to create a CSV file that you include into the DU.

    After importing the DU, the translated text would be stored in your multi-language table, where you could select from it, e.g. via a text join or with a filter on the language column.

    But somehow I got the feeling that this is not what you're looking for, so maybe you try again with explaining the requirement and the boundary conditions.
