Translation of SAP Terminology using transaction SAPTERM
By Rahul Manoj Mahajan, John Deere India
SAP business requirement varies across the globe and sometimes some business
requirement is such that we need to provide a solution in various languages. For
this we have Translations and once that is done we can view the development in
that language. However, most of the times it is very difficult for developers to
understand the SAP terminology in different language during the unit testing.
in order to get the corresponding word for that term SAP has provided the
transaction code “SAPTERM”. Using this user can easily perform the necessary
actions without looking for the translation over internet.
a scenario where you have login into SAP R3 system in German language. You want
to view the number of entries in MARA table and then continue you’re testing.
the transaction code SE11 and enter the table name MARA.
don’t know what the term “Anzeigen” stands for in English. So instead of
going to internet we can use SAP provided transaction code SAPTERM.
is the initial screen of the transaction SAPTERM. By default Source language is
English and Target language is German.
we want the English word for Anzeigen, change the source and target language
accordingly and paste it in Search Term and click on Find.
know the meaning of the word Anzeigen and hence we can click on it and then do
further actions accordingly.
above screenshot we can see that apart from English, we have got the translation
for that SAP term in different languages.
is very simple example and hence we can easily identify the word would be
DISPLAY. However, in complex scenario we may not easily guess the translation
and hence this transaction can be handy for the developers/testers.
we can notice that the output will show word in source language in BLUE color
and word in requested Target language in RED color. While the translated word in
all other languages will be in BLACK color font.
This tool can be very useful for those who need to work on SAP R3 system in different language which they don’t know and still needs to perform some actions like testing, replication of issues in particular language etc.
