All strings visible to users are outputted using the getString() function, which fetches the string in the user's language from the database. If CURRENT-LANGUAGE is not set, the smartDataPump looks for the current PROMSG file and tries to determine the user's language from the file name.

Currently, the smartDataPump 'speaks' English and German. Translating the smartDataPump is easy. Just edit p-DataPumpInitLang.p. Add your translations of labels, titles, screen-values, messages and output constants in the set* procedures. Run p-DataPumpInitLang.p to update the database. Then customize the language detection in sp-DataPump.p -> getUserLanguage().

While you add your translations to the assignments in the setProcedures, keep your session limits in mind. Either increase the -inp startup parameter from 4096 to 8192 or even higher, or split the ASSIGN statements into smaller pieces.

Before you translate the beast, please contact me.
