Use

You can create the following types of proposal in the proposal pool:

        System standard

        Application standard

        Exception

        Abbreviation

For information on how to access the proposal pool, see Accessing the Proposal Pool.

Prerequisites

You can only create application standards and exceptions for the following domains:

        The domain of the object you are currently translating, if you accessed the proposal pool from the short text editor.

        Domains for which at least one domain-specific proposal (application standard or exception) already exists.

        All other domains must be created in the proposal pool first. To do this, choose the Show Domain icon.

Procedure

...

       1.      Ensure that the text you want to create as a proposal is highlighted at the top of the proposal pool screen.

        If you branched to the proposal pool from the short text editor, you must have entered the text you want to create as a proposal in the translation line.

        If you accessed the proposal pool via transaction SLPP, you must have entered the text you want to create as a proposal in the text field in the Target group box.

        If you want to change the text highlighted at the top of the proposal pool, click the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon next to it. Enter the new text in the dialog box that is now displayed.

       2.      In the proposal pool, choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon next to the type of proposal you want to create. Example:

        To create a system standard, choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text next to Standard under System.

        To create an application standard, choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text next to Standard under the node of the domain in question. For example, to create an application standard for the domain Materials Management (MM) for ABAP short texts, choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text next to Standard under MM R MM.

        If you want to create an application standard for a domain that is not yet listed, choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon and then select the domain that you require.

        To create an exception, choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text next to Exception under the node of the domain in question.

        To create an abbreviation, see Creating Abbreviations and Full Translations for more information.

If you are creating a system standard, application standard, or abbreviation, the dialog box Select Status appears.

       3.      Double-click the quality status you want to assign to the proposal.

Note

You can create system standards with their quality status in a single step. Depending on the required quality status, choose the Status A, Status S, Status B, or Status X pushbutton. Alternatively, you can use the following key combinations: CTRL + F1, CTRL + F2, CTRL + F3, and CTRL + F4.

Note

If you are creating an exception, no further action is required.

 

Result

The system creates the text highlighted at the top of the proposal pool screen as a proposal, with the quality status that you specified. The type of proposal depends on which icon you chose.

You do not need to choose Save, because the system saves your changes automatically. You can now return to the short text editor or the initial screen of transaction SLPP by choosing Back.

To create further translations as proposals for the source text, choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon next to the currently highlighted translation at the top of the screen, and enter a new translation in the dialog box that appears. Proceed as described above. You are advised to keep the number of proposals per source text to a minimum. This optimizes performance, and ensures consistent translations.
