1)    Problem Description :

This Tutorial describe how to translate the POPUP text of English language in SAP transaction SBWP to any other language (let us say Danish). If SAP has not provided the translation for any language then a translation is required from a developer side . When the user logon into system in  English the popup text gets displayed in English. And when the user logon in the language Danish then the text should be displayed in Danish language but the problem I had that message was wrongly getting  displayed in English language for Danish logon. Because the translation was not provided by SAP.

To resolve the problem we can go through the below  points :

  • Do the translation in SE63.
  • Vai transaction SLXT (Report: RS_LXE_RECORD_TORDER )  attach the transport request and translation text so

        that it can be transportable to Quality system and trasport it normally

        Settings to see the problem:

      To see the issue in Tcode SBWP (SAP Business work place). Generate a popup which was appearing with a text at English for Danish logon. I  deally message text should be in Danish language. Logon to SAP in any language and create a substitution using a Tcode SWBP -> Settings->Workflow Settings->Maintain Substitutes.


  Substitution can also be maintain in Danish logon.As show below:


    Fill all the required details:

    Substitutes userid(Brugmeavn: user A) and a person SAP User ID whose substitute needs to be created (Brugmeavn pa substitut: User B) , Start and end date for Substitution . Press Create button.


    Go to SAP Business workplace (Tcode SBWP) of User A who is a Substitute and Accept the Substitution Via a menu entry



    A below Popup will appear click the check bok against substitute and confirm by enter.


    Now go to the SAP inbox (SBWP) Click on Inbox, a message popup will appear in English but we have loggin in Danish.

     This is  the  actual problem. Just  cancel  the popup if you want to recreate the issue. Don’t press YES on this popupup otherwise

      we may not be able to recreate the issue.


  Issue can be resolved by:

  Debugg the Popup first and find the name of the programe here it is SAPLSWLA Logon to SAP in English with any userid and go to

   transaction SE38. Program SAPLSWLA, Chose Text element  Radio button and display


    Now In menu bar GOTO->TRANSLATION


   A pupu will apear chose the target language DA (Danish), press enter.


   Translate all english sentences into Danish and save.


  Create the transport Request using Tcode SLXT (Report: RS_LXE_RECORD_TORDER ).

  Put the below details and Execute the programe                                             

  Select Target language ”daDK” Danish                                                                                                         

  Transport Request created: D01K9A***G

  (Create a workbench request in Transport organiser SE01 and use it here)                                                                             

  Object Type: RPT1 for Program                                                                                                                        

  Object Processor: Z8*** (Developer name)


   Execute this SLXt transaction now.

   We have transport request created and now release it via tcode SE01 to quality system.
