Basics

Modifying the terminology on screen or translating it for additional languages can take place in one of three places, depending on the type of content.

  1. Use Salesforce’s Translation Workbench to translate the standard user interface text in FieldFX provided by Salesforce in FieldFX.

    You can translate user interface text to any language fully supported by Salesforce.

    Refer to the What languages does Salesforce support? article for a list of fully supported languages.
  2. Use a Static Resource file to modify or translate labels used in FieldFX Mobile and the classic Item Builder tools.

    Refer to Custom Interface Labels below for instructions.

  3. Manage Custom Labels to modify what displays in Lightning components and Shift Scheduling.
