Field value with asterisk fails to be localized



When a field value rule having an asterisk (*) is localized using the localization wizard, the localized field value rule still has the original value instead of localized value.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Define a field value rule with a value having an asterisk in it.
  2. Run it through the localization wizard.
  3. Send the file for translation.
  4. Import the translated file to the wizard.
  5. At runtime, with the appropriate locale set, you will see that the field values with asterisk are not getting localized. 

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is software use/operation error. Proper localization guidelines were not followed to see the expected behavior.


Please look for 'Localization' in Developer Help to understand the steps to localize your application.
