mTranslate - Translation Tool for Global SAP Implementations



MOURI Tech Translation Toolkit mTranslate is an innovative tool to manage translations of a wide variety of SAP texts in SAP ECC, CRM, BW and SRM systems. Any global SAP implementation might require a large number of texts to be translated in multiple languages. With the tools provided by SAP, the translation activity is sequential, i.e. one SAP object at a time. The Translation Tool provided by MOURI Tech can simplify this process by automating the translation process.

MOURI Tech Translation tool mTranslate provides an easy user interface for translation that can be used by any user even without SAP knowledge. The translation tool can also make use of the auto translation provided by online translation services like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft etc.

The Translation Toolkit has tools to display the translation work list, export any translatable texts in the SAP system to a file, import the translated texts back into the SAP system and generate transports for all the translated texts, so that they can be moved to QA and Production systems. Currently the Toolkit involves functionality for translating texts for the following object Types

  • OTR Texts
  • Message Classes
  • Workflow Texts
  • Search Helps
  • Domain Elements
  • Text Elements for Function Groups
  • Text Elements for Programs
