Translation Synchronization Patch

In this Blog, I am going to explain you the way you can get the Translation Synchronization Patch for the Language you license thro OAM.

The Translation Synchronization patch feature provides a quick way for you to synchronize your existing translations with the American English file versions on your Applications instance. By applying just one patch for each language, you will be
able to bring your translations up to your current Applications patch level. You can also choose to get the latest translations to bring your translations up-to-date. The basic concept involves preparing a single manifest file for your Applications instance. This manifest reflects the language software content for all the active languages on your current Applications system. The manifest will be used to generate customized patches for your system. This feature reduces the installation time and complexity for synchronizing language installations. It also provides a simple way for you to update your existing translations.

Maintain language software - Synchronize the file versions of your active languages to the current American English file versions in your system.
This means that you can apply multiple American English patches to an instance and then apply a Translation Synchronization patch for each active languages to bring your translations up to your patch level. You do not have to apply the translated versions of each American English patch.

Get Latest Translations - Bring your translations up-to-date. In addition to having your language file versions synchronized with American English file versions, you have an option to get latest translations to bring your translations up-to-date. If you select this option, your Translation Synchronization patch will provide updates to your existing translations.

Release 11i
Release 12
Verify AD Patchset Level
You must be at least on AD mini-pack I (11i.AD.I.2), otherwise apply the latest AD mini-pack from OracleMetaLink. AD patch level report is generated by the following command:

sqlplus /

If you are not on R12.AD.A.1 or later, apply Patch 5635729. AD patch level report is generated by the following command:

sqlplus /
Apply Update
If you are not on 11i.AD.I.6 or later, apply Patch 5837664. This update delivers the latest tool for generating manifest file as mentioned in section 3. The latest tool will generate a single manifest file with all the active languages in an instance. Download this update and review its readme for instructions to apply it.

See "Verify AD Patchset Level".
Prepare the Applications Instance for New Language(s) If you are planning to request Translation Synchronization patch for a language which has not yet been activated in your instance, you need to do the following:
  1. Activate new language(s) using the Oracle Applications Manager (OAM) License Manager.
  2. Run the AD Administration utility to maintain multilingual tables from the Maintain Applications Database Entities menu.

If you are planning to request Translation Synchronization patch for a language which has not yet been activated in your instance,
Maintain Snapshot Information If you have never maintained snapshot information, it is recommended that you run the AD Administration utility to maintain snapshot information on all nodes.

Not required.

Generate and Upload the Manifest of Customer Specific Files

  1. Log on to your Applications' administration node as the APPLMGR user and source the APPL_TOP environment file. Use the manifest generation tool to generate customer specific manifest file by executing the following command:

    perl $AD_TOP/bin/

    The manifest generated from the tool is in the format :


    The manifest contains all of your active languages. You do not need to run the tool for each individual language.
  2. Once the manifest is generated, you can go to (use your OracleMetaLink username and password).

    Follow the instructions on the screen to upload the manifest file. A Translation synchronization patch will be generated specifically based on your manifest for each of your active languages. The patch will synchronize the language file versions and American English file versions in your Applications instance. If you select the option to get latest translations, the patch will also bring your translations up-to-date.

    If your current translations are already up-to-date and in sync with your American English file versions, you will be notified by e-mail that there is no need to apply Translation Synchronization patch.
If you do not receive any e-mail regarding your request within 48 hours, you may contact Oracle Support for assistance.

Download and Apply the Customer Specific NLS Patch

Once the customer specific Translation Synchronization patch is ready, you will receive an e-mail with the password to download the patch. You can also check the status of your request via (use your OracleMetaLink username and password). When your patch is available, you can download it from OracleMetaLink. Follow the instructions in the README file to apply the patch.
A Merged Translation patch may be generated if full translations are not available.

You can merge multiple language Translation Synchronization Patches and apply the single merged patch to your system. See Oracle Applications Patching Procedures guide for information about merging NLS patches.
