Hi Reddy,

Via transaction SMARTFORMS you can only change the original language of a Smart Form, because all definitions of the Smart Form (position of windows, structure of Smart Form tree etc.) only exist in that language. For the other languages you can only translate the texts. This can be done via transaction SE63.

You should always leave transaction SMARTFORMS, before

you enter transaction SE63 that you don't face the problem

So, create your smartform in English and translate the Arabic texts, use them in your smartform and then, Activate SmartForm again after the translations.

Hi Ramanjaneya Reddy,

Translation can't work if you want to print 2 languages in one page.

You can create

two test elements side by side (You can use a template with 2 columns)

one will print invoice items in "EN" and other will print in "Arabic".

Hope this works for you.

Please be sure that you issue your smartform issue in "arabic" language and your printer has insatalled with driver.
