Hey community,

is there a possibilty to copy just one language of an EPC diagramm with 2 languages?


I have an EPC diagram which first was in german, then also translated in english, now i need to copy the english version. I tried to change the language in "view" and copy the english version alone, it didnt work. It copies it in german too. I tried to remove the german attributes column, and save it, and copy then, it copies it again in german too.

Is there a possibility to take the english version out of the EPC?


Thanks a lot.

you can try to export/import model using XML. There is a dialogue that allows to select languages you want to export.

Warning. If you export model with one language selected and then import it in the same database and if the mode "source overwrite target" selected, you can lost your data (another language).

I would use another database to restore from xml.

BR, Nikita

Hello Nikita,

thank you very much for your respond. I only find the way to export it as a graphic.

Do i need a macro to export it in XML?

edit: i read elsewhere that i do it by right click on the process that i want to export and choosing export. But if i use right click on the process, i cant find a "export"...

Thank you

If you choose a model in explorer tree and right-click on it there is an option Export.

You must be don't have enough functional rights for the database if you don't have export option in context menu. Your administrator can help you. But I suppose there is a way to do it much easier.
