Translation with OTR

Hello

I have to translate my webdynpro from german in english.

i opened the transaction sotr_edit, choose short text and insert an alias e.g. vorname (in english first name). Now i fill in a packet and the objecttype WDYV. In the field text i insert "Vorname" and length is 4.

now i insert in my webdynpro "$OTR:vorname" into the field text of my view.

if i test the webdynpro now there is the identifier "Vorname". Thats right.

if i change the parameter "sap-language" in the link to "EN" an test it i get also "Vorname".

How can i translate the object now?

what are the steps?

I read that i musst use the transaction SE63. But there is no OTR in this transaction.

    Call the function module SOTR_API_WB_TRANSLATE in SE37 with the parameter:

    SOURCE_LANGU DE

    TARGET_LANGU EN

    PGMID LIMU

    OBJECT WDYV

    OBJ_NAME <<name of your component>>
    FLAG_STRING
    EDIT_MODE T



    Or you use transaction SE63, Menü Translation->ABAP-Objects->Short Texts, then select OTR. But if you have more than two OTR-Concepts, this is realy time consuming.
