Root Cause

Localizing a property value that is referenced in a field value is not supported in the product by default.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Create a non-auto generated control, for example, LocalizationControl, and add the below code:

    /* Body of LocalizationControl control starts */
    ClipboardProperty cp_active = tools.getActive(); 
    String localizedValue = tools.getLocalizedTextForString("pyCaption" , cp_active.getStringValue()); 
    <%= localizedValue%> 
    /* Body of LocalizationControl control ends *&nbsp;

  2. Change the existing field value to use the custom control along with the property reference
