2432843 - SAP Analytics Cloud's preferred language does not affect the language in geo map


  • SAP Analytics Cloud user preference does not affect the basemap's language.
  • With different languages (e.g.: Spanish, German, Chinese) the basemap is always the same; English + localized names of regions / cities, etc.
    • E.g.: language is set to German, but city is displayed as "Munich" instead of "München".


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Set language to e.g.: Spanish.
  3. Create a new Story with Geo Map.
  4. Country name is displayed as "Spain" instead of "España".


  • This is currently a product limitation.
  • SAP Analytics Cloud user preference does not affect ESRI's basemap.
