Enabling 5 character lang code (zh_CN & zh_HK) support in NW7.3


I have a SAP NW7.3 EHP1 SPS9 Portal.

Requirement is to enable support for 5 character Chinese languages (zh_CN & zh_HK).

Kindly advise if this is the correct forum to post this question.

We are using AFP and customized masthead.

In portal lang dropdown in masthead, I have to remove existing Chinese (zh) entry and add these two new language codes.

I have few queries: -

1. What will be impact on current Portal translation worklists that have been generated for rawtext/EN to zh translation?

    Would there be any by-default fall back that when user selects zh_CN, zh translations will be loaded?

2. What are other configurations/settings that I need to make in order to enable this support?

We have consumer/producer portals scenario here. Consumer Portal is on CE7.3 EHP1 SPS9.

3. How do I make sure zh_CN & zh_HK language codes are passed to backend SAP R/3 systems?

    (there are some iViews which are directly connecting to SAP R/3 via system object, without any producer portal in between)


4. How do I make sure zh_CN & zh_HK language codes are passed to backend federated producer Portals?


5. Are there any other factors that I need take into account while doing this?

Thanks & Regards,
