PurposeThis page contains information about launchpad translations.
From LPD_CUST (function Text keys / Translation) or via report APB_LPD_SHOW_TEXT_KEYS you can enter translation for long texts or short texts.
- Launchpad texts can only be edited in the master language of the launchpad:
- If you are logged on in another language, text fields are read-only.
- The master language of a launchpad can be seen in the line or when using button "show attributes" in the detail screen of transaction LPD_CUST.
- How to get to the list of texts:
- From overview screen of transaction LPD_CUST: icon translation.
- From detail screen of transaction LPD_CUST: menu "Launchpad → Textkeys / Translation".
- Start report APB_LPD_SHOW_TEXT_KEYS.
- How to trigger translation transaction SE63 from the list of texts:
- For description text: doubleclick on the text or use button "Translate".
- For link text: use button "Translate Short texts".
- How to set source and target language in SE63:
- Start SE63.
- Menu: "Utilities → User Settings".
- Language keys have to be entered with 4 chars! Please use F4 help.
- Changes to translation do not get effective in launchpad:
- Please save the changes with status "active".
- Message "Object not found" when trying to start translation via SE63:
- A TADIR entry does not exist for the text → trigger creation of transport requests first
- Text does not exist in status "active", this might happen if the text has been edited with transaction SE61 and not been activated afterwards.
- Check if the text is a general text or dialog text (for 'old' launchpads the texts have been stored as general texts (TX), new launchpads create dialog texts (DT)).
- Run the report APB_LPD_CORRECT_TEXTTABLES to correct potential inconsistencies in the text storage:
- This report has a test mode that lets you display potential inconsistencies first.
- You can start the report for a single launchpad or for the entire system. If you start it for all existing launchpads, we recommend starting it in background processing.
- The system sets an indicator for successfully processed launchpads, so they are skipped in subsequent runs.
