In response to feedback, our newest feature will be available in January 2023, keeping related phrases synchronized. Just a reminder about phrases, they are used in SAP S/4HANA Cloud for product compliance as a value for specific fields, such as in the compliance requirement World First Aid Measures or simply, Colors. Phrases contain standardized text strings that are provided in different languages, allowing you to use them for processes and documents needed for transporting and selling your products in many different countries.

Phrase synchronization allows you to manage company-owned phrases which are essentially the same. Naturally, this will increase efficiency when you need to create or adjust phrases, as the phrases linked together, when one is changed, all are altered. Here is a video with a demo of the feature, the demo starts at the 2:05 mark in the video, but I would recommend watching the entire video.

Phrases are provided as SAP content for complying with regional, national, and international regulations. We recommend these standardized and harmonized compliant phrases as a solid basis for your phrase management. Optionally, you can also create your own phrases, based on provided content. Here is a link to blog about our regulatory content service.

For more information about the Manage Phrase-Enabled Fields app, you can see an older blog and video here.
