SMLT- Support package import after Language Installation

Hello all,

I have little confusion related to SMLT --> Language import.

I have installed ECC 6.0 EHP5 system freshly.

I have imported ARABIC language package in this system. (I have taken this package from same version Language DVDs of ECC 6.0 EHP5).

Next step is import of SMLT --> Select the Language--> Special Actions--> Import Support Packages

When I do this, i get screen where all support packages are marked in green.

Most are with status: Translation already exists for this Support Package

and few with status: Language not in package. Language not necessary.

Normally, I have installed languages in already used systems. (e.g used since several years).

In such systems, I always get big list of support packages with RED color in this screen.

(That must be because many support package must have been installed after initial installation).

This is my first experience of installing language in freshly installed system.

And i assume that in my case no support package are show in in RED (required to be imported) because

1) i have not applied any support packages after fresh installation and

2) I have imported language package of same version,

I want to know whether this system behavior (of not showing any support package in RED) is correct??

    You are absolutely correct . If you would have imported the language pack after applying support packages on top of the fresh installation , then you would have to import the language parts of the applied support package for the language that you have installed as the new translations would be overwritten by obsolete translations . Since the support package level of the language package is same as of the installation support package level , you do not have to do anything as of now. This is why you see everything as GREEN.

    Hope this clarifies your doubt.
