Post subject: Translation management Tool on reports based on Bex Queries

Hello all,

We do experience some troubles to make TMT works fine in our BI 4 environment.
All our BO reports are based on Bex queries (via a BICS connection).

The translation in our case is mainly done in BW/ECC.
We need only to translate the texts that are typed in BO: column headers and footers, titles...

The first answer from the BO support is: "Please note that it is not possible to use TMT for reports based on bex queries"..;

Does anyone succeeded in translating BO reports based on Bex queries?

Best regards

There is a BUG in TMT not picking up the =GetLocalized() function. (ADAPT01667335)
This bug should be fixed in SP05 PATCH 5.1 (available as of 12th/dec/2012)
It's stated in the release documentation that this ADAPT nr is fixed (haven't tested my self)

Normally the procedure should be:
- Create your report in webintelligence
- All text fields which you want to translate in your webi report put them into GetLocalized, so column header customer should be:
Code:
=GetLocalized("Customer")

- Import the report in TMT
- TMT should display all the text field with the GetLocalized functions around them
- you can now easily translate the text field using TMT
- export the report (with the translations) back to the CMS with TMT.
