multilingual KM folder names

Hi all,

is there any way to translate KM-folder and file names?

In a KM navigation iview for example I want to see language depending folder names.

I'm creating these folder and files through a Web Dynpro app at runtime, so a programmable solution would be prefered.

Portal content translation is no solution, I think it's only possible to translate PCD-content.

Is it possible to create resource bundles "on the fly" through the Web Dynpro?

Or do I have to create a property for each language and programm my own view on it which gets the language specific property as display name?

Hmmmm....

Thanks in advance

Steffi

    Hi Stefanie,

    we had this requirement in different projects. We achieved "only" by implementing a simple property renderer.

    We created, as you mentioned, different properties for the translated names (ie. displayname_DE, displayname_ES, etc.), so that the translated names could be saved when creating the files or the folders. The property render only needs to check the personalized user language and depending on the language to choose which property to display.

    Hope this helps,

    Robert

    Hi Stefanie,

    The below blog deals with making your own KM navigation Iview.

    I think if u have a logic to translate name this [blog|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/1424] can be a good starting point.

    I hope it helps. 😊

    Please revert back with issues.

    Regards,

    Sumit
