smartforms and languages

Hi all,

We have written an application which uses a self-made Smartform. We pass the language to it as an import parameter and all include texts are called in this language. So when we use different languages they are correctly called.

Our problem is: how to do this for the fixed texts (column headers and such)? With Sapscript forms you have to maintain your form in the languages you want using translation and such - how to do this with Smartforms?

The logon language of the users is always the same, but they need to print the form in different languages. Within the application there is a language field they can fill in with the language they want, and this is passed to the Smartform as an import parameter (not via the structure CONTROL_PARAMETERS).

Thanks in advance,

    se63 -> translation -> R/3 Enterprise -> other Longtexts -> Smartforms -> select your form

    -> translate

    I have have found that when I do translations, SAP automatically creates a CTS of type Transport of Copies for the translation. The description is like the following:

    TRANSLATION collective PL 02.11.2004 (ANY USER)

    If you don't like this and you want to pick your own Workbench CTS, you can change this. Just go to SE63. Choose Goto->Administration->Transport Recording. From here choose your language. Check the boxes that say Display in SE63 and Request Changeable. Now when you go translate something you will have a choice between System Default (Automatic recording in collective request) or Use own request. If you choose Use own request, you can choose any Workbench CTS like normal.
