It is very likely that a deployment context or as an administration user wants to be able to include modifications to a field that has been extended or include a new translation when incorporating new users who belong to other regions and use other languages.

If you are looking for how to incorporate translations to the fields that you have extended in this post, I explain how it is possible to make changes or include new translations for the field descriptions in your marketing solution. You must be clear that these steps are applicable when you have already incorporated new fields is your solution.

A good guide on how to evaluate the types of extensions that you can make in your cloud marketing solution can be found in the following expert guide article at this link:  Extensibility Overview.

 

The first thing to do to make the inclusion of translations to your extended fields is to enter the application custom fields and logic, once you have entered, select the field to which you want to incorporate the required translation. When you enter the field you will have two options, you can make a massive update of the descriptions to be included in a new language or you can make a change one by one.

The lower image shows the initial screen of the field we want to edit, in the upper right  corner you will find translatation option.


When select the translation option, you can select the lenguage to wich you want to include the transalations , you have the options of including descriptions in all languages available on the platform, or change an exiting description.


Once the update of the descriptions is finished, you just have to save and publish the changes made.

To carry out a massive update, you must enter the field you want to edit, after entering the field you will see the download and upload icons in the upper right corner of the screen (you can see the reference in the image below).

The file provided by the system by default is of the CSV type, which you can edit in a simple way, you only have to include in the columns of the language you want to incorporate save your file and load it into the system.

Knowing these options will allow you to quickly include translations for different languages.
