Hi Sachin,

If they want to translate the data this is an operation that needs to be done at database level

the name Universe Management Tool implies that you can only translate the names of the objects, the data itself are not part of the universe.

Thanks

Hi Simone caneparo,

          Thanks for the reply.

We had not used universe, we have created Webi report by using Bex query. In translation manager we are facing problem to change dynamic text headings of a column. By using Getlocalized function we are able to change the static text but unable to change dynamic text of column headings. Please guide me to reslove the issue. Appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you are trying to translate your report data coming from Bex queries, then you need to leave unchecked "Save Language" check box when creating a connection to Bex. This should be the same for olap universe connections as well.

Hi Zahid Yener,

           Thanks for the reply.After changing the these setting how it well effect to the system can you please explain in detail. As your data are coming from a bex query, so in your OLAP connection

(BICS connection) you can change the language to "FR" and check(select) "save language" if we do like these how it well effect to the system .

Please guide me to resolve the issue. Appreciate your help. 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Do you have data in BW in both languages? If you do, then unchecking this will provide your users view data and Bex characteristics, and key figures (dimensions, details and measure names) in their own languages.

What kind of dynamic data do you have in your reports?

Hi Zahid Yener,

           Thanks for the reply.We had maintained description in the both language in english and french in Bw my user wanth both english and french report.I have few queries for you.Could you please provide the clarification.

1.If we change the OLAP Connections to FR and product locale and

preferred view locale to Francis, Francis (Canada) respectively.Will

the existing webi report appear to us in French language or do we have

to build a new webi report in french language again.

2.what will be the case with the existing webi report which is there in

English.

3.After changing the language to FR in OLAP connection,if we need to

build a new webi report in English using Bex query as source,do we have

to change the connection again to "EN".

4.If we have to see both the reports in English and French do we have

to changes the OLAP connection settings often.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Simone,

i have a similar situation and i understand your explenation. My question regards to the scheduling of an translated report.

We have several BW-User from several countries and we schedule some publication-object that burst the reports into sales orgs (based on webi-recipient-list).

But how can i schedule that publication object in the name of all the users to get several reports in its language that the users are assigned to in BW?

As a result based on my own tests, i only get reports in "Default Language" (the flag in TMT if no language is available)..

Can you give me a hint therefore??

Thanks alot,

Oliver

Hi Sachin,

Did you get any solution for your query (transalation of dynamic texts in reports like concatenated strings in as column titles etc)?  If so, please share the same with me.

We are using TMT for translating from English to Japanese but couldn't succeed in our attempts. Is there anything to be tweaked in TMT to get successful translation of dynamic texts in reports.

Any pointers in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Regards

Vijay.

Hi Sachin,

Hi VIJAY, this is very do-able in BI 4. there are three pieces to this (you could do what you ask in just step one however):

1. Bringing in Japanese or English data based on the users profile. You can do this in any of the BI tools via "Locales and Time Zones" setting under Preferences (set both the "Product Locale" and "Preferred Viewing Locale"). If you are using BICS keep the language in the connection string as NULL (no value) and the data pull will default to the preferences.

2. Showing Infoview in both languages. If you installed both language packs, the language preferences will handle this.

3. Finally if needed, you can also leverage the Translation Manager for any meta data (such as query description, folder etc). If you want in details mail at sachinreddy.tippani@gmail.com.

Thanks & Regads,

By using this option, you will be able to see the data in desired language set in the connection, but still the data needs to be there in the backend in that specified language.

Hi Sachin,

TMT does not translate Data into any language, it can translate report names, column names, variable names, query name etc.
