Are you using a custom function module to send the idoc, if yes then you can add code to do the converstion when populating the segments. or use userexits to make the change for UOM.

If you have middleware(XI) in the interface, the translation can be done in XI too.

You can use MD_CONVERT_MATERIAL_UNIT for conversion in the code.

No.. I am using the standard function module.

We can cretae converion rule using SALE transaction for ALE.

SALE> Modeling and Implementing Bus Procc> Convert Data Between Sender and Receiver..-->

Like this do u we have any Config.. or shall I handle the conversion in the Customer exit ..
