Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access an instance that is not in English language
  2. Open or edit a Table Report with Succession domain
  3. When selecting the columns for the report, realize that the tables name with “Nominee / Incumbent” words are not translated, in the table name these words are still in English.



 As the tables name in Report Table are just a system generated view, these words are not able to be mapped and translated by the system.
