SAP PM - Creating Multilingual Text

In many organizations, SAP PM module is managed in different languages. It is possible to create multilingual short texts and long texts for each functional location and piece of equipment.

Using short texts, the maintenance planner can identify the technical objects, whereas long texts contain the technical data in different languages.

You can create multilingual text only when the equipment category is set to allow this.

To do so, navigate to Logistics → Plant Maintenance → Equipment and Technical Objects → Technical Objects → Equipment → Allow multilingual text maintenance by EquipCategory.


To add a new language in SAP system, use T-Code − SMLT
