Multi Language Functionality

Hi !!!

I was working on multi-language functionality of Navision in IN 4.0 SP3 HF2. I was able to see the captions in the other language. But I wanted to know whether the data also can be punched in as well as shown in multiple languages.

    Data is data. I think that if you want to have data in several languages you will have to do some customization - something like new field for every language.
    Better to be critical then self-critical :)

    See e.g. Item Translation. It is new table with the Item No., Language code and translation for description. This is automatically used when creating order for foreign language tc. You cannot use that in global. Multilanguage data needs special processes everywhere they are used. Not possible to "Localize" data with some generic functionality...

    Now I do not understand what you want to do and what you mean by "multi-language functionality of Windows"...

    Keep in mind that even the Item Translation needs some coding.

    See Sales Line table, function "GetItemTranslation()".
    This function is called OnValidate of "No.". It's going to check the customer's language, and fetch the description from the Item Translation table.
