Maintaining catalog variants in multiple languages

Former Member

Hi All,

I have created a product catalog with 2 variants, one for english and other for russian, have maintained the texts in corresponding langiages in the layout area.

I created a webshop and used the catalog variant for russian, but still when the end user( his correspondence lang is maintained as russian) logs in to b2b he sees the product descriptions only in english.

In the shopadmin , webshop properties -> General Information tab, there is a field called "Language". When i maintain this as "RU" the shop itself is not displayed to the end user.

Please let me know what is the procedure to display the products in multiple languages!!! I must be missing something.

Thanks for help!

Hi Peter

Try the following steps if you want to use multiple catalog variants.

1. Select "Catalog Search (B2B Internet Sales" on the shop admin instead of assigning catalog and variant.

2. Make sure that Language field of the master data of the contact person is empty.

3. Create catalog views and assign to the Business partner ( Sold to).

After that if you log on then system will determine the logon language from the browser and will search for catalog variant of the same language.

Regards,

Sanjay

I've to ask you in an other way...

What you see when you call this link:

http://<server>:<port>/contextroot/b2b/init.do?language=ru

And what you see when you call:

http://<server>:<port>/contextroot/b2b/init.do?language=en

You say en is working, but what you see by the RU-link?? Any error or something?

I think your problem is this:

--> Now when I login to my B2B, then I am unable to see this russian shop, but the other shop that I maintained for "Language" as EN, I can see that shop.

You want to login and then want to see the 2 variants? But you've to call the apps only with http://<server>:<port>/contextroot/b2b/init.do?language=en or http://<server>:<port>/contextroot/b2b/init.do?language=ru

then it should work with 2 languages?

If it's not working, there is an error message?

The language RU is installed on your SAP?

I'm configurating this for you on my testsystem now. Please contact me at fan @ sfsservices.biz to receive the logindatas.

Hi Toni,

In the http://<server>:<port>/shopadmin/shopadmin/init.do>;

I created a webshop for russian :

In the "General Information" tab of the webshop, I gave the value for field "Language" as "RU".

In the "Catalog" tab, the value of field "Catalog" i set to <my product catalog number> and the value of field "Catalog Variant" i set to <russian catalog variant number>

Now when I login to my B2B, then I am unable to see this russian shop, but the other shop that I maintained for "Language" as EN, I can see that shop.

Hope I am clear, please revert for doubts.

Thanks!

Sorry, wat you mean now with that? --> but the one that has the russian catalog variant is not displayed at all during b2b login ( probably because default logon lang is EN)??

Can you give me access to your shop to see your problem? Or logfiles? Screenshots?

Thanks and best regards,

Toni

Hi Tony,

Thanks for responding.

If you are saying that I need to maintain 2 webshops in http://<server>:<port>/shopadmin/shopadmin/init.do, then I have already tried that, but the one that has the russian catalog variant is not displayed at all during b2b login ( probably because default logon lang is EN).

If it was not this please give me more inputs.

Thanks!!!

Hello Lisha,

For 2 languages, you need 2 configurations in shopadmin.

One for each language.

Then if you want to login with RU, for example you've to use this link:

https://shop.sfsservices.biz/sfslocher/b2b/init.do?language=ru

And if you want to login with EN, for expample you've to use this link:

https://shop.sfsservices.biz/sfslocher/b2b/init.do?language=en

Please ask me again if this is to few information for you?

Best regards,

Toni
