This is managed in a different place, indeed.

go to Setup->Customize->Tab Names and Labels->Rename Tabs and Labels

At the top of the screen there's a 'Select Language' dropdown. Select the language that you want to translate to and edit the labels in the screen below.

Custom Tabs are right below the Standard Tabs.

  • is there any other way to do automate translation for custom object tabs??

  • what exactly do you mean by automate? Since these are custom created objects, SF will not be able to provide a translation. Or are you referring to export and import of the labels for processing by a translation agency? Commented Nov 17, 2014 at 12:33

  • hi @Guy, I am interested if there are ways to export/import translation files for the custom and standard tabs and labels, just like how it's done in the translation workbench for custom fields, etc. Thanks.
