Use translated text Each instance can be localized, translating the instance to the instance's local language. Translated text fields allow the same field to display different content based on the user's language. There are two different translated text fields: Translated Text Translated HTML These fields operate the same as text and HTML fields respectively, except that they can store multiple inputs in multiple languages. The most frequent uses of translated text fields are in the Knowledge Base (e.g. article titles or content) or the Service Catalog (e.g. names, descriptions, or variables). The Knowledge Base also has an option for internationalization with the Knowledge Management Internationalization Plugin, which allows for language-specific articles rather than translating articles.Note: The type is translated separately from Translated Text and Translated HTML fields. Administer translated text fieldsThere is a slight performance penalty associated with changing a normal HTML or text field into a translated HTML or text field. It is best only to use translated fields if the translated capability is required.Translate the content of a translated text fieldAfter a translated text field or translated HTML field has been created and is in use, it displays English when viewed in a different language until the content is translated.
