Hello,

We are deploying the same miltidimensional cube for different clients. As far as I know, we can add the translations in the 'Translation' tab of the dimensions page let's say. One of our clients wants to add his own translations.

I have two questions please:

1 - Can we add multiple translations for the same language (German - V1 and German - V2) ?

2 - Can we have external resource files that include the translations?

Thank you in advance.

    Translations are only available in Enterprise Edition, not in Standard.

    For translations you can only select existing languages and you can select a language only once, not several times.
