multi-language report explorer portlet in information delivery portal

Hello,

We are using the information delivery portal with the report explorer portlet.
The reports are so designed that they are have multi-language support according to the users browser language (OLAP MLS) but the directory structure we build and put the reports in does not. we can build the whole directory X times for every language we need to support, ok but then we also need to duplicate the reports and thats not so good anymore. Is there a way to have a shortcut to a report so that we have one set of reports that are then individually categorized in X directory trees?

thanks,

Hi Bob,
That's a really good idea. However, don't think you can do that in the current version.

An idea is to have a 'master set' of reports in one folder and set up a copy of the metadata from the master to multiple locations & can be runs on a schedule to sync up. This could be considered a 'promotion'. Here is one paper that might give you some ideas on how to do this:
