Translating the message text

All ZDT/Db2 messages are stored in the HFM2MENU source member. This CSECT is part of the root module so that an English version of the messages is always available. In addition, all messages used by ZDT/Db2 under ISPF are provided in the library, HFM.SHFMMENU. Using both HFM2MENU and members in HFM.SHFMMENU, you can provide your own set of translated messages. To use the messages you have translated, see Using the translated messages and panels.

To provide translated versions of the messages, you must provide a version of HFM2MENU for your language, as described in Providing a national language version of HFM2MENU, and provide translated versions of the appropriate members in HFM.SHFMMENU, as described in Translating the ISPF messages text.
