Reproducing the Issue

  1. Post a Job Requisition on the External Career Site for Recruiting
  2. Apply to the job
  3. Go to the Job Requisition
  4. Select Candidates
  5. Note the Source and Candidate Source career site name entry will not change if the language is changed


The entry in the screenshot is broken into two parts, Corporate which is a system label :RECRUITING_CORPORATE_SITE: which can be edited via Manage Languages.

However the Default Site US is pulled from Manage Recruiting Sites where it is not possible to maintain a translation at this time.


At the moment only the system label :RECRUITING_CORPORATE_SITE: can be edited to have translations for the beginning of the entry for Source and Candidate Source.

The Site Name is defined in Manage Recruiting Sites as given below in the screenshot which does not hold translations:

If you would like to see translations to be made available for the Recruiting Site name please create an enhancement request for our Product so we may review this as an enhancement to be added.
