Translate the interface

After creating the choice record, translate the interface, including the applications, modules, UI actions, forms, lists, alerts, and choice lists.

About this task

  • Translated Name / Field [sys_translated]
  • Messages [sys_ui_message]
  • Field Label [sys_documentation]
  • Choice [sys_choice]
  • Translated Text [sys_translated_text]

  3. Import the translated document back into the instance as an import set.
