Duplicate check on values in different languages

Hi Experts,

Please clarify the below case, regarding the duplicate check in SAP MDG. We have a list of master data records in English language in MDG system.

Eg: Customer First name: AAAA Last name: BBBB

When a request from a particular region say China whose logon langiage is chinese, enters the same record of first name & last name as AAAA & BBBB in Chinese will the system identifies it as duplicate and pops up the message with that record?

If not, how can we handle this scenario to check the duplicates entered in different languages. Please suggest.

Thanks in advance,

Nalla B.

    Hi Bala,

    please check the note for duplicate check restrictions, basically pattern of the matching string is checked by system.

    Material - wont be an issue,allows several description also English desc is always mandatory.

    Business partner ,supplier, customer- you can use international address version whereas user can create one addressversion in English ,use duns number, address data.

    Thanks and Regards,
