Working with Translations in ARM

Translation feature can help you translate almost everything in your organization ranging from Salesforce custom objects, fields, labels, etc. This provides users with different languages to interact with Salesforce.

A. Commit and deploy 'Custom Object' translations with ARM

In order to translate custom objects for a variety of languages, you need to commit the following components.
  1. 1.
    Select the CustomObject metadata type and select the specific custom objects that you want to move the translation.
  2. 2.
    Select the CustomObjectTranslation metadata type and select the translations associated with the custom object.
Point to Note:
  • The translation will not take place and nothing will be retrieved if you merely use the CustomObjectTranslation metadata type and leave out the Custom Object.
  • The translation should be activated for the custom object in the destination org.

B. Commit and deploy 'Custom Field' Translations with ARM

To commit and deploy custom field translations with ARM, you need to commit the following components.

Troubleshooting:
In some circumstances, the CustomObjectTranslation might just have the opening and closing xml tags. In this situation, we advise you to do a commit while selecting the Review Artifacts option, allowing you to inspect the contents of the files before committing them.

C. Commit and Deploy 'Custom Label' Translations with ARM

Translations for custom labels determine what text to display for the label’s value when a user’s default language is the translation language.
