How to auto-update English-German attributes during translation?



For the translation of German attributes, an XML file with the German attributes next to the given English attributes is used. The English attributes serve as a base for later upload of German attributes. Many English attributes must also be adopted. It is time consuming to make the changes to the English attributes manually in the system for every property. Is any automatic or out-of-the-box method present in PRPC to first extract all English name descriptions (not using the XML file), and then bring them back into the Pega system through any import?


There is no out-of-the-box method of changing or updating the short description of multiple field values at once in PRPC. However, to achieve this functionality, write an activity to perform an Obj-Open or Obj-Save while reading the XML data from a file listener.
