Field values are of key importance for the localization wizard to render auto-generated controls in the target language.

Whenever you import a translation package back into the system, the system creates field values for the translated text based on the field value names. For example, when you translate the submit button caption, the system categorizes the imported text as a button caption because the FieldName of the translated field value is pyButtonLabel, which indicates to the system that this is a localized version of the button caption for this button control.

In the localization of auto-generated controls, the system uses the following field value names to categorize the translated text strings:
