Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Route Map and add a Step.
  2. Enter Step Name and Step Description as per default language and save changes. (English US)


  1. Change the language of the Route Map to a different language for example French and select the same step where the Step Name and Description were already entered.
  2. At this point language French is selected. Step Name and Description appears in English.



The Step Name and Description appears in English US for the user to provide information from what it needs to be translated in to the desired language. 

If the Step Name and Step Description are not modified and the Route Map is saved, no translation will be added. In this example, no translations will be added for the French language.  


Once changes are made to the Step Name and Description and Route Map is saved, the translation is created.

If the user changes back to English US and back again to French language by selecting the language option from ‘Language’ drop down menu, user will see the saved translation changes.
