SAP AG announced the availability of SAP ERP® Hindi in India. Honoring the trust that Government organisations reposed in SAP, localization of the software in Hindi was a natural path for SAP to enable its customers update and manage employee documents; help users transact various processes and generate reports to deliver better citizen services.
Developed by SAP Labs India, along with agencies including Filose and others with the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) and language experts, covering over 4.5 million coding lines, the software will ensure consistency across SAP applications by following standard terminology guidelines, contextual translation and quality assurance, says a release.
Hindi, the official Indian language and the preferred language of transaction for over 40 percent of the population. The increased pace of adoption of the SAP ERP in the government sector spanning across the Central, State, Public Sector Enterprises, Utilities, Municipal Corporations, Railways, Defense, Airports and Shipping, led SAP to localise its software to address local requirements of customers.
FiLoSe (Fidel Localization Services) actively contributed in localizing the SAP software to Hindi language.
A big team of Hindi language experts at Fidel worked relentlessly for last few months to get the localized version ready.
