The [[EVENT_REASON]] tag is composed to two things :
1. Action : The value of the action comes from the code based on the user action performed i.e. Create, Correct etc.
2. Label : The value for the label comes from the label field of the Object Definition. The Label Maintained here (or the default value) along with the translation are used.


To change this or add translations please do the following:
Navigate to  Admin Centre -> Configure Object Definition -> Select Your Object -> Make Correction -> Make the required changes.



Please Note: This change will also change the name of the Object
