3320307 - Translate Leave of Absence in Action Menu on People Profile


Customer wants to change the translation of the LOA HRIS Action label to a custom label using the custom language template from the Manage Language tool but it is not working.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental

  • Manage Language
  • Leave Of Absence

Reproducing the Issue

  • Import a custom label to change the Leave Of Absence label in the Action drop-down as indicated in this article -  2576546 - Using the Manage Language Feature to Change Labels in SuccessFactors
  • The Label remains unchanged.


The current label is taking its source from the datamodel.

If translation is present in data-model, it takes precedence over the custom language. 


  1. To use custom language, first remove the translation from the datamodel 
  2. Alternatively insert the translation directly in the datamodel
