2681354 - Translations are not Appearing in the UI after Uploading the Patch to Test or Production Tenants

While the translations are working fine in the development tenant UI.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Cloud Application Studio
  2. Open the Solution in the source system and maintain the translations in the source tenant.
  3. You can use the XLIFF file for translation of the fields.
  4. Once the Assemble is done.
  5. Upload the same patch to the target tenant.
  6. You can see all the translations are transported to the target tenant successfully by checking in SDK(Right click on the solution-> Translation-> Check Status).
  7. You will go and test in the frontend UI, you can see that all the fields are not translated in the respective language. 


This issue is happened because you have used the backend text option for labelling the field in the UI designer.


You should use only overridden text for the extension fields to ensure that the translation works fine throughout all the tenants.

  1. Open the UI Designer of the respective screen where you have maintained the translations.
  2. Select the field.
  3. Go to Properties tab.
  4. Under Text information section , select the option Label.
  5. Change the text pool from backend text to overidden text.
