Translation error in calendar list with german language pack RRS feed

  • Question

  • There seems to be a bug in SharePoint Foundation 2010 Language Pack 1031 (German). Some field names in a calendar list are not translated under certain circumstances.

    To reproduce:
    - Create a SiteCollection from an english template (e.g. Team Site)
    - With display language still set to English, create a new calendar
    - Set display language for current user to German
    - In the list forms (DispForm, NewForm, EditForm), the fields "Start Date", "End Date" and "Description" are still in English, while all other fields are german. Looking at the list content type shows, that those fields still have english display names. The base site fields are German, however.

    How can I change the display names for the affected fields? It doesn't seem to be possible via GUI.

    Kind regards,

  • There are also no translations for Slovenian language pack for the fields "Start Date", "End Date" and "Description".

    Is there any solution to this problem?

  • Well, I've fixed the problem. And it seems, that was a bug..

    First of all, if you don't need an english localization, you should do the following:

    1) After the bug appears, open Calendar List Settings, go to "Advanced Settings", Allow management of content types, OK;

    2) Open the content type Event, open StartDate/EndDate/Description/etc. columns, "Edit column"

    2.1) Make sure, that column name is in your language

    2.2) Switch language to english, change column name from english to needed language

    3) Enjoy :)

    If you want to use localization later, continue with following:

    4) Go to Site Settings -> Site content types -> Event

    5) Choose one of the columns (StartDate/EndDate/Description/etc), switch to English lang and rename columns to English(or make sure, they are in English already). Press OK, some changes will apply, than press ok again, enjoy :)

    Hope that'll help someone:)
