I was told this interesting solution to translate OTR texts by a colleague. I dont know whether transaction SE63_OTRshould work, but on the systems I had worked on it always throwed an abort message saying: old coding, please use SE63. I never figured out how to use SE63 for OTR to translate texts fast and easy. I am probably not the only one since there is another weblogwith another approach recently released.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Call transaction SOTR_EDIT

2. Search for the text you want to translate and edit it:

3. In the menu choose: Edit -> Context -> Change:

 4. Push the cancel button...:

 5. For some reason the select box Language changes from display to edit mode:

6. Switch to target language and save your data

7. On the initial screen you can now provide another alias, push display button and proceed with step 3: this will switch all necessary field to edit mode.

    This is really cool. This helped me a lot. I was just scratching my head to do the translation.

    Thanks - this helped me, too. I noticed another effect. Often I got error message: "No correction entry has been created"
    Solution: Restart sotr_edit - I had to do nearly every 2nd entry.
