SAP for Me now speaks your language
We are pleased to inform that the SAP for Me portal is now available in multi-languages.
Based on your browser settings, SAP for Me will be displayed in your preferred language. We support 7 languages: English, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Here are some instructions on how to change your browser language settings:
- Google Chrome/Microsoft Edge:
Simply go to your browser ‘Settings’-> ‘Languages’. Here is an example for Google Chrome.
You can add languages and click ‘Move to the top’.
- Apple Safari:
On a Mac, choose the “Apple” menu > “System Settings”, click General in the sidebar , then click Language & Region on the right. (You may need to scroll down.) You can change the default language of your Mac by switching the sorting of ”Preferred languages”, Move your preferred language to the top.
SAP for Me will automatically adapt it and display in your language.
Currently we support 7 languages, in case your preferred language is not included, English is used as the default language.
Please be aware that unlike in the SAP ONE Support Launchpad, where you selected the language in your “User Profile”, the language of your browser exclusively defines how you’ll see SAP for Me.
If you are using SAP for Me mobile app, we offer even more languages. German, English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Russia, Korean and Italian.
And also SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles are displayed automatically in these 10 languages using machine translation.
This marks another important milestone in simplifying your new, central entry point to engage with SAP.
Find more information about the transition of the SAP ONE Support Launchpad to SAP for me at My Support page from SAP Support Portal.
SAP for Me is made for you!
thanks for sharing Amanda! We will spread the word with our customers.
From my point of view this is only a second-best solution.
Why not use the Settings area of the profile to set the preferred language (as preferred date, time, and number formats can be set there as well)?
I would like to keep my browser language independent from the application language.
Thanks Peter. I have shared it with our colleagues and will come back to you.
Thanks Amanda Gong! This will help a lot!
That's also my case. I am also looking for this solution.
Thanks in advance.
like you, i'm appalled by the suboptimal way this thing has been thought through.
I can only agree to Peter Sprenger.
I would like to have SAP for Me in English, but my browser language is German (and I don't want to change this)
Please check and adjust
Thank you Roland! I have shared it with our colleague and will come back to you and Peter.
My browser language is German and I get SAP for Me only in English.
It is Microsoft EDGE.
Thanks for reaching out. I quickly checked with our developer.
If German(or any SAP for Me supported languages) is set as the first language in the preferred language settings in the browser, then the translation will/should work as expected.
If you have other language, e.g. Turkish as the first one, German as the second language, then currently there is an open issue as the website is displayed in English, instead of German.
But if German is already your first language and it does not work, please report a case to us at component XX-SER-FORME
This is not a very intuitive option in my opinion. As others stated, we would like to have the option to change the language settings for SAP for ME without changing the browser language.
Thank you Yassine. I have forwarded your feedback as well. Once I got further update, will reach out to you.
I have to agree to the other people commenting. This is a bad design.
I'm located in Germany and while my browser default are set to "German" I want to use all SAP services in English only.
While this has been possible on the well established SAP One Support Launchpad it's no longer possible on SAP for ME. Yet another reason not to use it.
Got it and thank you Markus. Will let you and others know once I got further update.
Kind Regards, Amanda
Is there any update? SAP is now starting to force customers to use it but I still cannot change my language. This is a show stopper for us.
I switched to SAP for Me and I'm stuck on it. very frustrating.
Did you know customers and partners can submit and vote for ideas pertaining to SAP for Me within Customer Influence page? In fact, there is already an idea created for SAP for Me Language Settings that you can vote on today. We'd love to hear from you!
Thank you Shelly.
This definitly needs to be "fixed" before SAP forces us to use SAP for Me. It's totally unusable for now.
thanks for your blog post. I am from Germany and whenever I open up a SAP note it is displayed in the wonderful German machine translation but leaving me with the option to switch to English original document.
I prefer seeing the notes in Englisch in the first place. I already switched my language in my SAP settings to English, but it does not change anything.
Can you help me out on that?
Thanks and regards
Thanks a lot for your comment!
You'd like to keep your browser language as German, but display SAP notes by default in English, right? If so, I think it's the similar request with the other comments, I have shared the feedback to our colleagues. I will let you know once I got additional input.
exactly what you are saying 🙂 I mean, it's nice to get pointed to German, but the machine translations are in my opinion... mostly... let's say cumbersome 😉
Thanks for the post Amanda. But i agree with our german friends, but in my case, my browser settings are in spanish, and i don´t want to read the sap notes in spanish. I preffer english. In fact, i did not know how to change the language of "SAP for me" untill read your blog.
Thanks and best regards.
I agree with everyone that changing your language independently from the browser setting should have been an option from the start.
Sadly, most of us have no control over browser settings.
Please fix this before the death of the launchpad.
Thank you for the blog post. Its really helpful
Just to provide a quick update with regards to the issue you raised above on whether it is possible to change SAP for Me language in profile language. Currently it still goes with the browser setting. For Notes and KBAs, there are machine translation to translate into the desired language.On the bottom of every note there is a language selector. You can just scroll down and click on the language you want to see.
I will keep you posted if there are new updates.
I 100% agree with everyone here saying that this should not be bound to the browser language. This is really really bad design.
I also am based in Germany and use most of my websites in german. But everything regarding SAP has to be in English. Because almost everything we do in regards to SAP is also in english.
And the machine translation for SAP Notes and KBA's are... lets say a "Beta" more or less. Machine translation is just not working when error messages or specific technical issues are explained. It's unusable.
I'm already not a huge fan of the decision to completely kill the SAP One Launchpad and forcing us to use SAP for Me. But when changing this, it would make it much easier on me....
Thank you for your feedback Josh! Totally understand that. I will share the feedback to the team. Meanwhile, as Shelly pointed out, could you please also vote on this one? Thank you!
"Did you know customers and partners can submit and vote for ideas pertaining to SAP for Me within Customer Influence page? In fact, there is already an idea created for SAP for Me Language Settings that you can vote on today. We'd love to hear from you!"
Please revert this modification, I don't want to see the notes in my own language, and it doesn't even correctly translate the technical names.
Is anyone else having issues in this new SAP for Me?
I am no longer able to see correction instructions for OSS notes.
correction instructions are not displayed for any OSS note in the new SAP for ME
every time I try to view the Correction Instructions of any OSS note in the new SAP for ME I get this error "supportshell-dgq5qdz5dm.dispatcher.int.sap.eu2.hana.ondemand.com took too long to respond." and no Correction Instructions are displayed.
There appears to be an issue in the new SAP for ME for OSS notes
