Hi,

I am trying to understand about the launguage translation. I have got a master file which specifies the title to be in 'French'. Is there a way where i can get the complete data in French. Will DESC_FR do the magic. I tried using this in car file but dont see any change. Am i missing something.

Thanks
shru

That won't happen automatically. Only TITLE is aware of your SET LANG and TITLE_nn will be automatically chosen.

When it comes to data though, *you* will have to make provisions in your code to make sure you pull the right data field according to the language chosen, WebFOCUS cannot do that for you.

-* Assume language is available via &IBIWF_language  (or any parameter of your choice)

TABLE FILE FOO
PRINT
      CODE 
      DESC_&IBIWF_language
END



If you want to get fancy, you may attempt using a global variable (&&) to capture the language, declare that one within your master file and then DEFINE a few virtual fields of your own where you pick the "right" field depending on the language, all of this directly in the master file.

Check this for some ideas.

Hope this helps.
