About change to using one-byte alphanumeric characters for Product name, Level names/ Component names in chemSHERPA data entry support tool for articles(Partially revised_2)

We’ve promoted the conversion from local languages (double-byte characters) to one-byte alphanumeric characters in order to meet the standards with .IEC62474 (global support).
With the cooperation of all of you, we have completed the conversion of the product name of the tool into one-byte alphanumerical characters, and then have been asking for conversion about Level names and Component names in the composition window into one-byte alphanumerical characters.
About some correspondence, we have confirmed that some users are delayed in conversion due to the large number of Components.
In order to ensure that this response is taken, we have decided to postpone some of the plans and changed the original plans as shown in the table below.
Therefore, please proceed conversion so that there is no delay with this plan.
