I'm experiencing a lot of difficulties for making translations for reports in SAS VA.
My browser is set in English. I develop the reports with SAS VA in English, but I have to create the reports in NL (dutch) and FR (french).
So when I create the report in my mother tongue Dutch, in an english browser the language is EN_us.
But it could be that someone his browser is set to Dutch, so i have to copy the EN_US to NL. And then i have to translate the NL to FR.
In the end i have 3 language files i have to maintain? Each time a label changes, i have to change it 3 times. It's not really friendly/easy to use.
Any best practices, tips?
There's a whilte paper by Will Ballard and Elizabeth Bales called One Report, Many Languages: Using SAS Visual Analytics to Localize Your Reports that you might find helpful. (It's based on a SAS Global Forum paper they presented.) The paper's content is applicable for the 7.1 - 7.4 releases.
Hope this helps,
