Copying texts from orig. lang. to other language by program

When you make a report you have to write original texts for it. Then if you want offer

this report to users from different coutries you have to translate all texts. But some times

it is not necessary to really translate it but only to copy original texts into translated

texts (so technically the report is "translated" but actually it shows still for example EN

strings). We use it for excample just for IT programs (having only EN strings but they are

displayed in EN,DE,CS languages as well). This copying of original text is usually done by

Goto -> Translation... Selecting target language ...and there by Edit -> Copy source texts

-> All lines.

But when you have objects like DDIC structure or DDIC table, you can have your own data elements

used by the structure and each data element has long, medium, short texts and such. So the copying

of original texts can be time consuming when your structure has for instance 36 your own data elements

(i.e. with your own texts).

Is there some standard report which could do this copying of original texts to translated texts

automatically after giving a name of object which can have texts (DDIC structure, data element,

report, domain and such...)?

Hope my question is clear
