ESS/MSS BP 1.50 - Issue with alternative language



We're implementing ESS/MSS WDA and have an issue with trying to use different languages.

The French language is installed and we have applied the patch for MSS Add-On 1.0 (as per oss note 1608232 - Missing translations), but when logging in to the portal although the mian internet explorer page is all in French, aspects of the SAP content are showing in French, some in German and other bits in English.

For example, the main menu down the left is all French (i.e. 'Team' says ''Equipe'), the team calendar heading says 'Teamkalender' (German)', the months are showing in French (i.e. Janvier, Fevrier etc) and the performance management iView opens in a mixture of German and English.

We have looked at the portal translations functionality, but if we add an iView to the translation worklist it shows nothing to translate?

We were under the expectation that providing the user accounts were setup as French and the language was installed, the iViews should automatically translate as per the users logon preferences?

Has anyone come across issues similar to this before or able to point us in the right direction as to what we may be missing?

Thank you
