WinCC OA: How to Change “Came” and “Went” Alert Text

The texts for the alarm direction are defined in the WinCC OA message catalog, the keywords are “entered” for the CAME-text and “left” for the WENT-text. If you would like to translate or change the texts which are shown in the AEScreen for the alert direction you have to perform the following steps:

Step 1

Copy the file to the language-dependent msg-directory in your WinCC OA project. This file is available with the texts in German, English, and Russian languages. You can find the file here: C:\Siemens\Automation\WinCC_OA\<WinCCOA version>\msg\en_US.utf8

Step 2

Open the file with a text editor.
