Setting Localized Names

Article Number:040557

You can set app descriptions, field names, and other item names in the following languages: Japanese, English, and Chinese (simplified).
Configuring the Localization setting allows users to display items in different languages based on their Display Language setting.
Reference: [Types of Display Languages

For example, if you set an app name in English and Japanese, the English app name is displayed for users whose display language is set to English, and the Japanese app name is displayed for users whose display language is set to Japanese. If you want to display item names in Traditional Chinese, enter the names in Traditional Chinese into the "中文(簡体)" fields in the Localization setting. The text entered into the "中文(簡体)" fields will be displayed for users whose Display Language is set to Traditional Chinese.
