Multilanguage Support at data level


I have seen that BO provides a tool (Trasnlation manager) to provide multilanguage support at metadata kevel (universes and reports), What about the contents. For instance: Consider that we have a dimensional month table with month names for ecah language in different columns. How to achieve that BO displays the month name according for user local language preferences?

      Hi Stratos,

      Thanks for your suggestion. Its fits well for a table with following structure

      Product ID LOCALE Product_Name

      DC1212 en_GB Digital camera Appareil photo

      DC1212 fr_FR numérique

      DC1212 de_DE Digitalkamera 606 Universe Designer

      DC1212 es_ES Cámaras digitales

      ... ... ...

      SELECT Product_Name




      At query time the user replaces the variable by the correct locale value and Web Intelligence retrieves the information in that locale.

      But what happens if instead of a LOCALE column I have a table with a diferent column for each language? Could be possible to apply some workaround?
