When Alternative Language Fields are set as mandatory, new users cannot be added to the system via Hire Wizards due to a "is required" error which is displayed when trying to move from 'Personal Information' to 'Job Information' even though the fields referenced by the error were populated during the 'Identity' step.
1. Name in Alternate Language 1: First Name is required
2. Name in Alternate Language 1: Last Name is required
Note: Once you move on from Identity to the Personal Information the values entered in Alternative Language Fields are no longer displayed in the UI but if you click to edit Identity the information is still visible/present.
