Deactivate (all other) selections using the flag “Deactivate Selection”. Load the work list using the “Load objects” button.

Enter target Language texts for BI objects in the Worklist.  

In order to translate a single object you have to double-click on it. In this simple scenario every single object will be translated individually and sequentially.

Steps to be followed after changing the text for the required objects.  

Transfer Texts to the M-Version of the BI Objects Using Program RSO_AFTER_TRANSLATION. Texts are only translated for objects in the A or D versions. Texts of objects in the Modified versions (M) are not translated. Therefore, a specific step is required - Otherwise, when you call the maintenance transactions in the target language, the system displays the old texts (if available) for these objects first. This program will transfer the newly translated texts to the modified version (M) of the BI objects.  


Go to transaction SE38 and execute the program RSO_AFTER_TRANSLATION.

Execute the program with the following parameters.  

Request/Task: Name of the piece list.

Language Key: Source Language.

Language key: Target Language.  

Verify the translation in the respective object maintenance screen.
