3009416 - Wrong VAT Translation for Portuguese


When previewing a Customer Invoice document, you see that the description for VAT in Portuguese is showing "Imposto sobre valor agregado" and not "Imposto sobre valor acrescentado".


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Select the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Search for the ID ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Customer Invoice).
  4. Click Preview.

The description for the VAT shows as the following: Imposto sobre valor agregado p/ Port. (23 %).


Both translations are correction, however, the displayed value of "Imposto sobre valor agregado" is the most common value used in Brazil.  The standard translation in SAP Business ByDesign is the Brazilian Portuguese.


This is the system expected behavior.

What can be used to perform text changes, is the Customer Language Adaptation Tool.
