I'm a software engineer and I have started to work on SAP environment on february 2004. I have designed many SAP applications using Web Dynpro ABAP technology.
The Online Text Repository (OTR) is a central storage location for texts, and services for editing and administering these texts.
In BSP applications, you can work with OTR and the ABAP Workbench provide a translation tool to translate the BSP pages and views.
In Web Dynpro components every text that you insert in the layout of the views is saved in the system as an OTR text but there isn't a tool to easily translate all created text in the views.
I have written a program to facilitate the translation of the OTR text created in view's layout of the web dynpro abap component.
When the program starts, select one or more web dynpro components that contain the view to translate thought the search help , the source language and the destination language then execute it.
The program shows all views of the selected web dynpro component.
By clicking on "Translate" the translation screen (like the one used for translating BSP page) is shown. This screen is shown thought the function SOTR_API_WB_TRANSLATE.
To install the translation tool on your system copy the following tool in an SE38 program.
