3. /nSE38

click SIMULATE button at top bar (this will tell you if any errors, example Code Page not match)
If simulate OK then click ACTIVATE button on top bar.

FINISH – your language is installed & activated!!!!!!!

The language import runs quicker during the upgrade. So you should import all the languages you need during the upgrade.
Therefore you should check before upgrading whether you have the latest language CD for all languages used.

    Important point to note is that you cannot remove an imported foreign language from the system

    How can I determine whether a language import or a supplementation run has run correctly and when they were last performed?

    Use the system log display in Transaction SMLT.
