3464128 - Incorrect error request message for Date Format


When attempting to input date in Personal Information Documents Portlet or Work Permit Information Portlet in Bulgarian Locale, the error message requests an incorrect date format.

The system accepts "dd mmm YYYY" but rejects "dd/mm/YYYY", only allowing numerical input without slashes (ddmmyyyy = "дд/мм/гггг").

Users can still enter dates, but defect is the error message requests an unaccepted format.
