Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use Danish or other language as the system's default locale.
  2. Add new hire to onboarding
  3. In the event reason dropdown, translation is not working as it is still showing in English, but works fine when hiring a new hire in MPH.


In the current onboarding feature, translation for Event Reason and Company is not supported.


At present, this is not included in the roadmap. If deemed necessary for the business, please submit an enhancement request.
