Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SuccessFactors as an employee who has a sample default locale of French
  2. Navigate to Home dropdown > My Employee File
  3. Navigate to the Skill portlet and the employee can see ratings
  4. In the upper right-hand corner, select your profile picture > Settings
  5. Select Change Language > select a different language (i.e. English) > Switch
  6. Navigate back to Home dropdown > My Employee File
  7. Navigate to the Skill portlet and the employee can no longer see the same ratings


Expected behavior where ratings will be shown in the language of the user who provided the rating


The Skill Profile block is no longer being maintained and will be sunset in the future. As a result, changes will not be made to this functionality.


Change the language to the same language as the user who provided the ratings.
