LSMW: Texts are only available in German or English

Updated May 18, 2018

The texts of the Legacy System Migration Workbench (LSMW) are displayed in German or English, even though you have logged on in another language.

The texts of the process step list are not available.

The error messages are displayed without text - only the error number is specified.

The LSMW only exists in German or English, therefore, you must use the language supplementation in transaction SMLT for all other languages. There, you can supplement your language accordingly with German or English. Refer to the online documentation of transaction SMLT for the relevant SAP release.

To display the process step list correctly, the /SAPDMC/LSCSTEPT table must also be filled. If necessary, use transaction SMLT to fill the table manually.

The same applies to table T100. This table contains all messages that are issued with the error messages.

Then use the '/$CUA' and '/$DYN' commands to reset the buffers.

If this procedure is unsuccessful, delete the language load as described in Note 110910.
