Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to National ID and add a new Country.
  2. Select a National ID Card Type and in the National ID field, the text NATIONALID_FORMAT_BLANK is shown.


This cannot be translated. This is a hard-coded and appears when no Display Format is defined for the National ID Card Type selected. There is no configuration to handle the translation of this text.
