Translating the panel text

All Z Data Tools panels are provided in English.

You can translate some or all of these panels into another language. (If no translated version of a particular panel is available, Z Data Tools uses the English version.)

All Z Data Tools panels are stored in HFM.SHFMPENU. You translate a panel as follows:

  1. Find the members in HFM.SHFMPENU that you want to translate. The panel members specific to the Z Data Tools base function are all named HFMxzzzz or HFM0zzzz where x is an alphabetic character (A—Z). (ZDT/IMS panels are named HFM1zzzz and ZDT/Db2 panels are named HFM2zzzz.)
  2. Create a library with the same characteristics as HFM.SHFMPENU, with the name HFM.SHFMPyyy, where yyy is the same language code that you specified to change your print and display translation tables. (See 4.a.) Copy the required panel members from HFM.SHFMPENU to this library.
  3. Change the required panel text in the members in your library. A panel may reference a help panel by means of a .HELP statement. If any panel you are changing contains any of these .HELP statements, also copy and change these referenced members in your library.

To use the panels you have translated, see Using the translated messages and panels.
