2622730 - Manage Languages Not Showing Correct Text When Using Quotes in a Translation


When using Manage Languages and creating quotation marks (") in a translation, the translation does not display correctly in the UI.


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. From the Admin Center, go to the Tool Search > Manage Languages. 
  2. Import a custom label pack that uses a label translation with a quotation mark (") in the middle, i.e. Click on the button "Open" to open the file
  3. Check in the UI for the change.
  4. Notice the correct text is not displayed.


The system uses quotation marks to determine the beginning and end of a translation so that it can contain a comma in the middle.


To use quotation marks in a translation in Manage Languages, use a double quotation mark so the system understands to insert a quotation mark.

For example:

Click on the button ""Open"" to open the file
