Language Swap System: Language Swap Maintenance by Record

Language Swap Maintenance by Record

Language Swap Maintenance by Record window.

Refer to Introduction to the Language Swap System for an overview of the system.

Use this window to make language translations for all fields in a particular record of a file rather than of a particular field in many records of a file which is best done in the Language Swap Maintenance by File window. The icon Swap Language Translation icon you will see on many master data windows makes this choice for you, as does the ScratchPads — Translate for Language Swap menu function.

First you need to select the file from which you want to amend or add translated texts and the window provides a dropdown list for this purpose.

When you select a file, the first key record will be found and all the translatable fields will be presented for all the swap languages in which you can make your translations. Leaving a translation blank or deleting the text in an old entry will lead to no translation record being created or the existing record being deleted.

You can move to the previous and next records using the Down down/up Up icon buttons. Or you can enter a new key value which, when leaving the field with a tab key press will find the appropriate record and present it’s translations. You can also click on ScratchPad lines to select a new record or the BoM listing.
