Internationalization (I18) in a Non-Unicode System


     We have existing WD ABAP Applications and they display the data in English language. The client wants the data to be displayed in Spanish for some viewers. I have tried converting the text using the OTR, but am unable to convert the languagte from English to Spanish. I came to know through our basis team that the system is Non-Unicode, i.e it supports only English Language. Can that be the reason behind the non conversion of the text from one language to another ? If so, plz suggest how can we achieve our task.

    Hi Umang,

    this depends on the code page setup of the ABAP system. If it is implemented as Latin-1 (Western European code page) system, then Spanish should work as well (however Unicode would be the recommendation).

    However I am not sure what you mean with "Conversion" ? Usually customers install the language and then they are capable to login in that language ...

    Best regards,
