This chapter contains the following topics:

2.1 Prerequisite

Before you begin translating JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software, you should become familiar with the guidelines for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application development and any other appropriate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne documentation.

2.2 JD Edwards Translation Tools Overview

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software supports manufacturing, financials, distribution and logistics, and human resource operations for multisite and multinational organizations. An organization's business needs determine what product lines are installed in its enterprise system. Complex business situations might require several product lines to achieve a comprehensive solution. The JD Edwards System combines those applications with an integrated toolset and tailors them to meet the needs of each business.

Product lines are created from combinations of systems. For example, the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Financial Management product line includes system 03B (Accounts Receivable), system 04 (Accounts Payable), system 09 (General Accounting), system 12 (Fixed Assets), and other systems. Systems, in turn, consist of executable functions, forms, reports, database tables, and other components that are designed for specific business needs.

You use JD Edwards Translation Tools to translate each component of each system in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software.
