Reproducing the Issue

  1. Select any language other than English
  2. Go to user's performance inbox and select any form
  3. Navigate to the audit trail section of the form
  4. Notice the system-generated comments column on the bottom right section are not getting translated 


  • The comments are not getting translated because they come from user input directly.
  • Note all SuccessFactors system comments are generated in English.
  • If the user is in a language mode other than English, the system generated comments will be displayed in English.
  • All user input comments will not get translated (e.g. if the user has input the comments in Spanish, it will not get translated to English if the user switches its language mode to English).
