Window: Language

Description: Maintain Languages

Help: The Language Window allows you to define multiple parallel language for users. This allows users to access the same data but have the windows, tabs and fields appear in different languages. If a language is a System Language, you can change the User Interface to this language (after translation). Otherwise the language is only used for printing documents.

For the language code, we suggest using the Java convention of country and language (e.g. fr_CN - Canadian French).

Verify the translation creates missing translation records. Start this process after creating a new language.

Tab: Language

Description: System and User Languages

Help: If you want to add an additional User Interface language, select "System Language". Otherwise, the system allows you to just translate elements for printing documents.

Active The record is active in the system There are two methods of making records unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reports.

There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records: (1) The system requires the record for audit purposes. (2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are invoices for this partner record existing. You de-activate the Business Partner and prevent that this record is used for future entries.

Language Maintenance Maintain language translation in system You can Add Missing Translation entries (required after activating an additional System Language) - Delete Translation Records - or Re-Create the translation Records (first delete and add missing entries).

Note that Adding the Missing Translation records creates them by copying the System Language (English). You would apply the Language Pack after that process. Run Syncronize Terminology after importing the translation.
