Adding Records for All Supported Languages
If you add a new list of values record for a multilingual list of values type, and if you do not add records for each supported language, and if a user who uses one of these languages attempts to view the information, then Siebel CRM displays the language-independent code instead of the display value.
If you use Assignment Manager, then you must add records for all the languages you support. For more information, see Configuring Siebel Assignment Manager to Use MLOV Fields.
For more information about adding records to the list of values table, see Siebel Applications Administration Guide.
To add records for all supported languages
- If you add a new list of values record for a multilingual list of values type, then you must add records for all supported languages.
For example, assume you must support German, French and English. In this situation, you create two new records for each display value. One record for German and one record for French.
Make sure the language-independent code for each new record is the same as the original record. Make sure the Language and Display Value fields are set differently to reflect the language.
