Self-Service Machine Translation for SAP Notes and Knowledge Base Articles
[UPDATED May, 2023]
Machine translation usage is ever increasing at SAP and is used in many applications. In 2018, it also became a reality for SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles in the main channel of Product Support: The SAP ONE Support Launchpad. The service has been embedded into the SAP ONE Support Launchpad for many years now and provides immediate access to machine translated SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles in 10 languages. Since 2018 our machine translation service for SAP Notes and KBAs has been used to translate almost 13 million documents.
You may wonder what will happen when customers and internal users are redirected from SAP ONE Support Launchpad to the new customer interaction space, SAP for Me. Great news, automatic translation of SAP Notes and KBAs stays even when SAP ONE Support Launchpad goes!
When it comes to implementing an SAP Note or SAP Knowledge Base Articles, customers are able to read the content in their native or preferred language via self-service machine translation for multiple languages, removing language barriers for even more customers.

These languages are German, English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Russia, Korean and Italian. If your browser language is outside the 10 languages, all content will be displayed in English.
