  16. Note: Academic title is not translated


Academic titles are not language dependent. An academic title like "Dr." or "Dipl. Ing." is more like a part of the name. Therefore, it is usually not translated.


To overcome the problem, you could create additional entries in Business Configuration > General Business Partners > Maintain Academic Titles that use the title in the desired languages
