translate general text transaction


Hello Gurus,

can you please let me know what is the transaction to translate a general text TEXT ID = TX Text object = DOKU ?

I am trying to translate the standard text for notification used in the report RSWUWFML2

I have searched on tcode SE63 but I could not find the object.

Thank you

From what i understand If you are trying to translate a text n the report you can directly navigate to the below path from menu bar once you are inside the program.

Go to --> Translate

You will be facing a pop up where you have to fill the source and destination language to which you need to translate.

In case if you are talking about a SO10 text, please note that SE63 wont help in that case, you need to individually create text in SO10 for each language.

If its still not resolved, request to explain about your requirement further.




I am trying to translate the se61 dialog text swu_notif_epilog1 to EN, do you know how to translate it?

You are almost there, all you need to do in SE61 is pre select the "Document Class" to "Dialog Text" (DT) and the language you want to change for your object SWU_NOTIF_EPILOG1 (it looks like you can't change these fields but actually you can 😉

Then it will ask you a modification name and you should be able to change it.
You could also change it in table DOKTL directly, but I do not recommend this, since SE61 is the tool per default for these text objects. I figured out that it was DT - "Dialog Text" by finding the entry SWU_NOTIF_EPILOG1 in DOKTL, in case you have further text elements you need to translate this way.
