  • Explain SAP Analytics Cloud translation options


You can translate metadata (descriptions and other text that you enter) for stories, analytic application, models, public dimensions, catalog content, and SAP Analytics Hub content to different languages. For example, you may have stories that have descriptions in a default language, but you need to have those descriptions translated to other languages so that your stories can be understood by more users.

Anything you need to translate must be enabled for translation. Anyone with Edit access can enable translation. The figure Where to Enable Translation shows where to enable translation for a story or analytic application, and how to request translation for a model.

If your organization is large, or if you are translating a lot of text in bulk, you can have it translated into multiple target languages using third-party translation tools. But if you are a smaller organization with minimal translation needs, you can translate those descriptions using the Translation dashboard. You can use the dashboard to review translations, and edit or add translations from scratch for some or all languages. You must be assigned to an Administrator or Translator role to use this translation feature.

From the Navigation bar, choose Translation. Anything with translation enabled is listed, and you check the object you wish to translate. You can either Edit Translations manually in the Translation dashboard or Export/Import XLIFF files for translation by third-party software.

In the Translation dashboard, select the desire Language to translate to and then manually enter the translated text for the available elements.

When you are finished translating, select Save.
