3154444 - G/L account Short Text description is displayed in English despite what the logon language is


The G/L account Short Text description is displayed in English when the logon language is other language, for example DE, JA and so on.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app Manage G/L Account Master Data
  2. Choose one account and go into detailed page
  3. Check the short text and long text description
  4. Change logon language to another one and check again the text description


The description in maintenance language is set as EN, which depends on Chart of Account.


In this case it is English, which means the description in the Maintenance of the GL Account displayed with the Maintenance Language and not in Logon Language.
