Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Languages and check the "Last Modified" column


It is not possible to audit any updates on the Language Pack. (For instance: The user who has changed any label in a specific language).

It is possible to audit when and who inactivated/disabled or re-activated/re-enabled an existing custom locale in Manage Languages (by enabling/desabling, we mean checking/unchecking the checkbox related to that custom locale). To request that, please report a case for Cloud Product Support providing the Company ID and the name of the respective custom locale.

Please make a note that if you are looking for a historical changes that was changed by any user to any specific custom languge that report canot be audited via Change audit report or from backend.

As for deletion, if a custom locale is deleted, all related data is also deleted from the database level, then no audit information is available.
