Add second language using bulk to Name Aspect NLS
Is there any way how to add a second language into Name Aspect other than manualy clicking the "NLS" button and then "Add" language? I would like to bulk second language description texts. When switching locale on Win station the bulk tool always overwrites ENU to e.g. FRA and will not keep original English text.
Any help will be appreciated.

Follow Stefans answer.
The aspect on the user is called "Object Handling Profile Values", the setting you should change is "Basic Property Name NLS Handling". Set it to integer "2".
Then work with the prefered language with the bulk job, DON´T forget too change back language when you should do other engineering work.

Each user has a preference for what shall happen when writing a name or description (eg from a BDM sheet launched from Excel) in a session with the desired locale, eg French set. I believe default is ”replace”. By changing to ”add”, a new NLS resource is added.
I have forgotten the name, but iterate the profile settings for a given user and you will find that setting (an integer value).
Be sure to:
- reset the value upon completing translating
- reset regional settings back to English (United States) since engineering *should* not be done in non-english.
