Reproducing the Issue

  1. Change the language to Thai from Options -> Change Language.
  2. Check the dates in the instance, for example, Go to my employee profile -> Job information section to create or edit on the date field.
  3. Notice the year value in the date field.


  • When we choose thai language in Bizx, it uses the Buddhist calendar and this is the expected behavior as per the design.
  • There is a 543 years difference between the Buddhist calendar and the Gregorian calendar.
  • The reckoning of the Buddhist Era in Thailand is 543 years ahead of the Christian/Common Era, so the year 2017 C.E. corresponds to B.E. 2560.

  • This is an expected behaviour as described above.
