2059150 - Recipient's Country Name is Not Written in Recipient's Native Language


When you open the Form Template Customer Invoicing, you find recipient's country name is not in his native language. But the remaining address is in the recipient's native language.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to work center Application and User Management
  2. Go to view Business Flexibility->Form Template Maintenance
  3. Open a Customer Invoice
  4. Find the name of the country is not written in the customer's language


According to the official international postal guidelines, the country name is supposed to be written/printed in the language of the sender country, while the remaining address is supposed to be written in the language of the recipient  country.


This is a by-design behavior.
