In OBIA with OBIEE 11g, Translation of OBIA Repository metadata is not working
Repository metadata visible in BI Answers should be translated.

Steps done:

  3. Modified translation file
  4. Created translation table and loaded it with translation strings (wc_translations_g)
  5. Created dedicated translation pool (Translation)
  6. Created Initialization Block (TRANSLATION Init Block)

But still all is in English.
