The B1 Translation System allows you to create keywords that can be used on many of the B1UP configurations. The keywords work as a placeholder and are replaced with a translation when the configuration is applied.

NB: B1 Translations is only active if you have  the database configured to support multi language (Administration > System Initialization > Company Details)

The caption of a function button is on the configuration window set to the keyword #[Account]. when the window with this function button is opened the keyword will be replaced with the translation made for the language  the SAP client is currently running.
If no translation exists for the current language a default translation will be used.
