Working with Demand Management on a Multilingual PPM Instance

If your PPM supports multiple languages, make sure that you understand how this affects the Demand Management entities (request types, request header types, notifications, workflows, requests, and so on) that you create or modify.

If you work with Demand Management on a PPM instance that has a multilingual user interface (MLU), consider the following:

  • Any entity you create is defined in the language you selected at logon (your session language). After you create the entity, it can be modified only in its definition language.

  • If an entity is defined in a language other than your session language, you cannot edit the entity unless you first change its definition language.

  • If you copy an entity from the PPM Workbench, and the entity is defined in a language other than your session language, you can copy existing translations for that entity.

  • Notification recipients can see the notifications in their session languages. If a notification recipient's session language is not supported on your PPM instance, then the notification's definition language is used.

For detailed information about session languages, definition languages, and translating Demand Management entities in a multilingual user interface (MLU), see the Multilingual User Interface Guide.
