Applications can be localized easily by adding language files (.po-format) to the application. A fallback language has to be defined. At default the language will be set according to user’s environment, browser or device language.
For the translation of the individual applications, .po files are used in the Simplifier. Those can be viewed, downloaded and uploaded via the Language tab in the UI Designer.
To create a new translation file, you can download a template from this overview by clicking on the corresponding button.
Important: translatable values must be flagged within a widget in order for them to appear in the default language file!
In this template, all values marked as translatable in the widgets used are listed and can be translated into the target language.
This file can then be added via the Plus icon. You have to select the target language and the file you want to edit. In order to avoid cache problems, rename the file before uploading.
If the desired language is not available, please contact your administrator, as these are maintained in the server settings.
To change the language at runtime, the following script must be inserted in the Process Designer: sap.ui.getCore().getConfiguration().setLanguage(“en”), where “en” can be replaced by the desired abbreviation.
To start an application with a specific language, the URL of the following query parameters can be added:
