Changing Masterlanguage in WebDynpro


is it possible to change the masterlanguage of a WebDynpro project?

Unfortunatly I´ve created my project with masterlanguage english (default). Now I need to switch to german.

I´ve already changed all "en" entities to "de" in all .wd files of the folder /src/ and in the file .tssapinfo in the root folder of my project.

This does not have any effect. Where do I have to adjust the language?

    Hi Helmut,

    if the masterlanguage is already set as "en" within a project, you nee to set first in every .wd* file (Web Dynpro Metadata) and in every ,dt-file (dictionary metadata) the attribute "masterLanguage" to "de". If you use an "older" version of the IDE, there will be probably a lot of *_en.xlf-files. All these files need to be renamed to *_de.xlf. Also, you need to edit manually: rename source-language="en" to source-language="de" and .

    After all, a rebuild should create the german .properties-Files.

    Please let me know, if that mechanism works.

    Best regards, Karin

      Hi Karin and Helmut,

      by the way, wouldn't it be great, the design time tools could change the master language of a project after the creation automatically? The necessary steps to do this are well documented in this thread already 😉)

      Best regards,
