I want to create EUL(Business area) to multilanguage use (2 languages).
User can access to data, using selected language.
He must see Item name in this language.
I don't want to support two EULs. It's very large.

Do You have any suggestion to multilanguage support of EUL?

Hi,

In order to use more than two languages, you have to consider some things:

1. You need to have an appropriate characterset in your database which will support
    both the languages.
2. If you are using a multibyte character language like chinese then your database
    characterset need to be UTF8.

Once the backend database characterset issue is resolved then you can go ahead
and create only one EUL in the database and at the time of running the Discoverer
workbook you may select the language. It will show you the data properly if it was
entered in the same language as you are trying to display it.

Regards.

Hi santoshmathew,
Are You sure?
It's about language, not about character set.
It's more about metadata (EUL), than about data.
My suggestions:
1.Make primary EUL and translate it to secondadry EUL after each change.
2.Create multilanguage EUL (I asked especialy this possibility)

Hi Jankovsky,

It is not required to have two EULs in order to see the data in two different languages.
However, the data should be entered in the proper language and the database characterset should support it.

Even without entering data in two different languages, you can run a workbook in two languages but the
output may not make sense.

I am sure it will work.

Regards.
