2815879 - Incorrect Spellings when Logged in German Language

Symptom

You are logged in german language and you see some discrepances in the way how certain words are spelled.

Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into the system, in German language
  2. Workcenter view Opportunities is spelled as Opportunitys

Similarly, you see that the spellings of certain words is different from what you expect.

Cause

Opportunity is also used in german, this term was approved by consultants for ByD and C4C in early terminology reviews for the german UI.

According to german spelling rules, only an s is added for the plural forms of words ending on -y. The same applies to the term query, which is taken as querys.
Other examples:

Lobby - Lobbys
Party - Partys
Hobby - Hobbys

Opportunitys is therefore the correct spelling.

Resolution

This is a correct system behavior. Alternatively if the user does not wish to see the same, this can be changed via language adaptation.
