Language import using SMLT


I'm trying to import the French language into a 4.6c R/3 IDES training system. In transaction SMLT during the import process i'm having an issue with the path for the language packages. How do i point this to Front End Cd drive? Whatever path I put in there, it returns with an error, "Specify a valid path". I've tried copying the files to the local SAP server in a directory, for example to C:\lang and entering this into the path, but still have no sucess.

According to this : -

There should be an option to "Load from Front End", this I don't have to can't see.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Tin,

check below things

Before you start transaction SMLT for language import, you must configure the required languages using the RSCPINST report. For more information, see SAP Note 42305.

In SMLT, the names of the imported language packages are only displayed with up to 12 characters. Therefore, language packages with longer names (up to 20 characters) are truncated.
