Translating multiple transactions into French

What's the best approach for translating multiple transaction screens from English to French? SAP application development expert Matt Billingham answers.

I have multiple transactions containing screens which have been custom-developed in English. I need to have these available in French also. I have read a lot about SE63.

Is it possible to translate a data element to French, so that whereever that data element is used for a field,

the screen will be automatically translated? Or do I need to go to each screen and translate all of the fields individually?

If the screen fields are marked as coming from the data dictionary, then the translation will be taken from the dictionary, the text coming from the data element. You'll only have to go screen by screen if the fields are not marked as data dictionary fields.
