Procedure documentation Classifying a Language  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You must classify each language so that the system can recognize it. Otherwise you will not be able to import a language package, nor supplement the language.



       1.      Choose Classify Language (Language symbol) or choose Language Classify.

       2.      On the following dialog box, choose the language you want to import, and the corresponding supplementation language.

       3.      Note that the imported languages (whether imported with transaction SMLT or in an upgrade) must be defined in the instance profiles so that you can log on in these languages. The relevant parameter is zcsa/installed_languages.

SAP recommends that you supplement every language that has not been translated completely (languages other than English and German) after it has been imported successfully. This guarantees you correct texts for all texts in the system. You can check how much of a language has been translated by going to the transaction SMLT and choosing This graphic is explained in the accompanying text, or by choosing Language Information.

The following rules apply when you define the supplementation logic:

        You cannot supplement a language that has a complete translation.

        You must define a supplementation language for each language in the system that does not have a complete translation.

        You can only supplement from a language with a complete translation, or from a language that itself has been supplemented from a language with a complete translation.
