Translating IMG Structures

Use

You can access the various object types in the IMG structure for translation in the usual way from your personal worklist in transaction SE63. You can also access the structure directly, as described below.

Procedure

...

·        SHI3: Choose Translation ® ABAP Objects ® Short Texts ® S1 ® SHI3, or enter the shortcut SHI3 directly in the command field. The system displays a dialog box that requires you to enter the technical name of the object to be translated.

·        SHI5: Choose Translation ® ABAP Objects ® Short Texts ® S1 ® SHI5, or enter the shortcut SHI5 directly in the command field. The system displays a dialog box that requires you to enter the technical name of the object to be translated.

·        TLGS: Choose Translation ® ABAP Objects ® Short Texts ® S2 ® TLGS, or enter the shortcut TLGS directly in the command field. The system displays a dialog box that requires you to enter the technical name of the object to be translated.

The object’s technical name consists of the technical ID (shortcut) of the object type, the actual object name, a variable number of blank characters, and the table in which the logical object is defined. For example, CUS0SIMG_CFMENUOCNGBCG3         04 or CUS10ALE_HRDST_FSD         02.

It is difficult to estimate the number of blank characters, so you are advised to enter the object type and object name and then start an F4 search using a placeholder. For example, CUS0SIMG_CFMENUOCNGBCG3*. You can then select the object you require, and access it in the short text editor by choosing Edit.

You can simulate objects of object type SHI3. The objects are displayed as the end user would see them. For more information, see Simulating Short Text Objects.
