is it possible to translate a custom object tab into multiple languages???

automate translation is not done for our custom object tabs...

How to fix this issue??? any one can help me.....


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?? – fsales572 Nov 17 '14 at 12:11
  • 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? – Guy Clairbois Nov 17 '14 at 12:33
  • ok, thanq....... – fsales572 Nov 18 '14 at 4:52
  • 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. – SamuelDev Sep 2 '15 at 3:45
  • Hi @SamuelDev. It would be best if you post a new question for this on stackexchange, so any answers you will get can help others as well. – Guy Clairbois Sep 2 '15 at 8:22
