Wer kann mir einen Link zu einem vern├╝nftigen deutsch-englischen SAP Glossar geben? Ich suche schon seit Stunden im Internet herum und kann einfach nichts v├Âllig Brauchbares finden. Ich brauche Ausdr├╝cke wie \"Pflichtenheft\" etc.

Herzlichen Dank im Voraus f├╝r eure Hilfe!

A SAP trick Oct 28, 2002

Hi Dorothee,

As far as I know, there is no decent online glossary. But try this trick:

In Google, type your

Sometimes you then have to retype the query by reentering your term at the head of the query.

This will take you to the German SAP site. Find the term and remember where it\'s located. Go to the URL and delete \"de\" and enter \"en\". That will take you to the English page. Hope this helps.


Using the above method, I got functional specifications for Pflichtenheft.

Auf CD... Oct 28, 2002

Wenn man ├Âfter mit der Materie arbeitet, lohnt sich auch SAPterm, die offizielle Terminologiedatenbank von SAP. Ist f├╝r 99 Euro ├╝ber die SAP-Website erh├Ąltlich und zwar auch nicht optimal (ein komplettes Glossar von UI-Elementen, wie es z. B. MS bereitstellt, fehlt v├Âllig, und der Ausdruck, den man gerade braucht, ist wahrscheinlich nur in Finnisch oder Tschechisch enthalten [Ausnahme: man br├Ąuchte gerade genau die finnische oder tschechische ├ťbersetzung]), aber f├╝r die grundlegende Terminologierecherche irgendwann schneller und bequemer als die Website (die allerdings nat├╝rlich noch ganz andere Vorteile hat).

Quellenkomplettierung Oct 28, 2002

Hallo Dorothee,

Uwe hatte ja schon das englische Glossar unter erw├Ąhnt:

Das deutsche Gegenst├╝ck findet sich unter:

├ťber vergleichende Suche (mit 2 parallel ge├Âffneten Fenstern) kann man damit eine ganze Menge herausfinden.

Noch ein Tip: SAP-W├Ârterbuch Deutsch->Englisch unter:

Aus irgendeinem Grund funktioniert hier der Link \"SAP-W├Ârterbuch\" nicht, man kann aber immer noch direkt die einzelnen Buchstaben des Verzeichnisses anklicken.

Hoffe, Dir geholfen zu haben

SAP glossary workaround (from FLEFO) Oct 28, 2002


This was posted on Compuserve\'s FLEFO Forum (still in operation and now accessible free of charge via the Net) a few years ago:

>> SAP\'s help website contains SAP glossaries in German and English, and I have discovered a trick for quickly finding the equivalent of a term in the other language.

The main website address is:

For this example, we want to know the English equivalent of \"Meldebestand\".

Go to the most recent release for the language pair concerned. For the German glossary, click German under Release [4.6C]. This opens another window; click Glossar

Choose the initial letter of the term you\'re looking for, e.g. for \"Meldebestand\", click M. Find the term you\'re looking for, then **right-click the entry** to open the pop-up menu and choose \"Open in new window\" (or equivalent in your browser and language version).

This opens a new window with the glossary entry. To display the English equivalent, place the cursor in the Address box above the HTML page, which should start with a string such as .....

Use the mouse to place the cursor in this address bar, and replace /de/ with /en/, then press Return.

This displays the English equivalent of the term (\"reorder point\").

Logically, this works just the same way English-German, except you start by clicking English under Release 4.6C.

Of course it would be much easier if SAP simply provided a link to the English equivalent, but until they do, at least we have a workaround.

Note that the glossary still *doesn\'t* contain some of the most frequently encountered terms, e.g.

SAP-Systemhaus = SAP VAR

Glossary workaround still works! Oct 29, 2002

Hi Tony,

It must be a good three years since I posted that workaround, and it still works. Incidentally, it also works for SAP helps on the website.

Dorothee: If you want a quick tutorial on how it all works, I\'ll show you in Atlanta.

Atlanta, eh? Fair enough. I\'ll just stay here in my crappy little village ...
