Change portal language at application level

Hello SDNers,

We have a few ESS applications (JSPs and ITS based) in our SAP Portal.

We have a lot of spanish users in our company.

We would like to allow the users logging into the Portal to change the Language for one application.

That is, in other words, if a user logs into the portal, he will basically see "English" as default for all the

applications.

Just for one application, we would like to introduce a dropdown, where the user would be able to select

either "English" or "Spanish" before getting into that application.

1. Can we change the Portal language at an application level? (My understanding is that if we change the Locale for

a particular user, the whole Portal content will be set based on that Locale.. which is not wanted in our scenario)

2. How do I go about achieving this?

We are fine creating separate content for the two languages in the PCD. But how should we go about translating the JSPs

and ITS based applications into Spanish.

Please share your ideas on this.

Thanks,

Surabhi

    Hi Surabhi,

    By using the "Forced Request Language" property, you can force a language at an iView level. this may help with your requirement....

    Adding Language-Specific URLs

    Hi Surabhi,

    If the users are anonymous users not authenticated, they can change the language using Masthead dropdown list which requires parameter change in Masthead iView.

    "Language Personalization for Anonymous Users property in the Masthead iView".

    Refer the following link for more details:

    Hello Surabhi!

    With authenticated users the language can only be changed portal wide in the user's properties. Unless the application itself supports a separate language switch, which is quite unusual.

    Regards,
