Metadata Translation in Salesforce

In this article you will learn what is Metadata translation and how it can be useful in multi-lingual orgs.

What is Metadata Translation ?

When you enable multiple languages in your Salesforce org, Salesforce translates some labels for you, based on the language type. For labels without a default translation, you can localize your apps and custom functionality for any Salesforce supported language through metadata translation.

In situations where Salesforce doesn’t provide default translations, metadata translation allows you to localize apps and custom functionality that you build in Salesforce. You can translate items such as custom labels, custom objects, and field names.
