  • The FTE translation pre-delivered by product is not just a word FTE but along with there are place holders in curly brackets.
  • When updating the translations for FTE in Position Org Chart via Manage Languages feature, please make sure that the place holders are mentioned too.


  • The issue is when we have overridden the default translation for the label of the FTE used in the org chart, which is key= ORGCHART_POSITION_FTE
  • Renaming it to just "FTE", while the label how Product engineering team has delivered it is for Spanish Language, so if we want ETC to be FTE he would need to name it since the placeholder will be replaced with the current and target FTE.
  • You can find the custom translation if you search for manage languages, search for the Spanish language and on the right sight there is an action menu where you can upload and download the custom translation.
