Use the SmartStyle in translations created by TCode SE63

Former Member

Hi experts,

I have a SmartForm with an SmartStyle in german, now I want to translate it to english, I can do that with the transaction SE63 and it works ok.

The problem is that the translations do not keep the style from the SmartStyle, for example, I have a text with right align, and when I am in the translated document, this right align is not displayed...

Is there any solution for this? Any way to associate the SmartSytle to the translation? Or am I doing something wrong in my translations?

Thanks a lot,

Robert.

Hi Robert,

during translation, did you ensure that you also adjusted the Tag Column (first column before the actual translation)?

If yes, is it possible that the tag codes are double-assigned? In the latter case, try to choose a unique tag for the paragraph format.

Hi Matthias,

yes you were right, I had for the "variable name" this code:

/E      &variable_name&

And for the translation with a star *:

/E     &variable_name&

*       Translation

But in the translation I had to put the "Code" from the SmartStyle, R:

/E     &variable_name&

R      Translation

Now I get this right alignment, the issue is: there is no way to keep automatically the format from the smartstyle without writing it in the translation? Because if later I make a change, I do not want to have to change the translation too.

Thank you!

Regards,

Robert.

Hi Robert,

* marks the default style. For each text element, the tag code of the target should match the tag code of the source. /E is the name of the text element

/E &variable_name&

relates to the text element itself. It should be followed by at least another line, e.g.

/E &variable_name&

R  Actual Text

whereas in this case R is just an example for the tag code.

Kind regards

Hi Matthias,

I have something like this in the source:

/E     &text_element1&

*       Value in german

/E     &text_element2&

*       Value in german

etc.

And in the target I have:

/E     &text_element1&

*       Value in english

/E     &text_element2&

*       Value in english

Is that ok? With R the format is ok in right align... but I do not know if Im doing right.

Thank you!
