Translation Manager-Report Translation

Hello there,

In this blog post ,i am going to tell about Translation manger client tool and its usage to convert let say from English to  French report.

First goto Business Objects client applications and open the translation Manager.Followed all are the screen shots pf the steps of the Translation manager usage.


In the followed screen submit the credentilas and select the type of authencation and click OK.


In the followed screen,Import the Report to which Transaltion is required.


In the Followed screen ,select the report you want to do translation .and then Import the report to do translation.



In the followed screen ,First select the language you want to translate,in the language management.


After doing so,Export the reporsitoy to the same lacation from where the report had been imported.



Thats it,then go to the infoview, and change the Infoview preferences ,and change the preferred viewing locale to ‘French Canada’ and Open the report.

You will see all the translated mask of the Report.

On Important Note:

Translation manager is used to translate only Report Metadat or Unvierse metadata only.Its kind of preparing a Mask of metedata in other language.

Data Translation Won’t happen using Translation manager because Data is the Dynamic part of a Report which will flow into the report from the Databases.

So if you want to see the Data Translation also ,Then the Two language objects should be present in the Universe.Bring the two Objects into the report,and Using Ifelse logic you can display Objects accordingly.

Logic:=If(GetPreferredViewingLocale()=”fr_CA”) Then “Object_french” Else “Object_English”
