Master data and installed languages


we would like to print on invoice and delivery note material descrption on greek language but we don't need to login into our ECC system in greek language.

Is indispensable to load/install into ECC system greek language to see and print material description in greek language?

PS: we are already in Unicode.

Thank you for attention.

    Unicode just means that your SAP can understand and work with the greek characters.

    If it is really only the material description in GReek language, then you do not neccessarily have to have the Greek language installed. Then you only need the description maintained in the material master, and you take care in print program and form to get the greek material description printed, while the communication language is still different from Greek language.

    If you want print the entire documents in Greek language, then you have to install the language, otherwise you cannot have the SAP terms in Greek. Of course you have to translate your own customizing (e.g. shipping conditions, payment terms) as well to Greek.
