We need the support "Integrating with IBM BAW by implementing a robot task" on Japanese environment.

Integration with IBM Business Automation Workflow(BAW) and Automation Anywhere Enterprise(AAE) is important function. That discriminates IBM RPA with AA and other RPA tools include original AAE.

"Implementing a robot task for a basic setup" function is convenient for using BAW Robot task call RPA.But "My Tasks\IBM\TaskBot Import (Tech Preview).atmx" command doesn't work on Windwos Japanese Env.
We are proposing RPA w/AA to SHISEIDO and told the customer that BAW and RPA coworks well. That's advantage to other RPA tools. 
PA support told us this function doesn't support Windows Japanese env.

CASE No. TS001669576
IBM Business Automation Workflow Enterprise V11 V18.0
IBM RPA Server V11.2.0.0
IBM RPA Client V11.2.0.0

Windows Server 2012R2 Standard Japanese Env.

According to the above manual procedure, I attempt to import XML file generated by BAW, but it failed.

I got below error on line 43 of bot "My Tasks - IBM - TaskBot Import(Tech Preview) - TaskBot Import(Tech Preview).atmx".
Unable to find 'Yes' PushButton. 'Search Criteria' did not match.(TYPE_1000)
An error occurred at line number 43 of Task 'TaskBot Import(Tech Preview)'.
Open the Task in Workbench to view action at line number 43.

Line 43 of the bot is below.
Run Logic "Add Variable" from MetaBot "My Metabots\IBM PRA Bot Generation.mbot"

In Logic "Add Variable" of the mbot,

There is a place where "Yes" button is Left Clicked, and the actual screen is "Yes(in Japanese)" button.

*This phenomenon does not cause problems in the English environment.
