Display a BSP in the language of the User

I know this has to be answered in this forum, but I have been looking on and off for that past few months and I have not found anything that is working. This is the first BSP pages we have implemented. It is on a R/3 4.7 system that is not enabled for Unicode. The page works great in English, but when one of my German users log in, even though their language in SAP is set for German, they see the page in English. What am I not doing correctly? I have looked for tags to put into my code to trigger SAP to display the language of the user, but have had no luck . I have read some documentation on Worklists and OTD, but it is not making much sense.

Can somebody point me in the right direction, I would realy appreciate it.

Thanks

John

    Hello John,

    Internationalization is done using Online text repository of SAP.

    You have to maintain your translations in this repository, and have to replace hard coded texts and labels with otr tag.

    Refer below help link for details:

    [Internationalization and Translation|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/66/b5cd3a69ba784be10000000a11402f/content.htm]

    Best regards,

    is the german user already able to logon in German but he only sees english texts or is he even not able to logon in german language? (check sy-langu when debugging)

    does adding URL parameter "&sap-language=de" to your application URL help?

    maybe in your SICF-node for your application the language is preset to English?

    do you have your texts translated in OTR?

    ... please take into account, what's the users first language in the browser setup. The german user may have also 'English' as one and only language in their browser (->IE*->Tools->Internet options->Languages ...) ...

    You may have a login page (allways in english), where the user can made a choice on his language setup.

    SAP provides a generric framework via transaction SICF (->Node details->Login pages ...9 You may also find help at the SAP Help Portal

    Best regards,

    Stefan
