2444498 - Address Type Language Incorrect in Workflow Approval Step

Symptom

  • During workflow approval, address types Business and Home are in the wrong language.
  • Correct language translations exist for addressTypes in the picklist, but are not being displayed in the workflow.

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud
  • Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the example below, the workflow was created by someone in the en_US (English) locale.
  2. When a user in the de_DE (German) locale logs into the system and proxies in as the user in the en_US locale, address types Business and Home are displayed in English instead of German:

Cause

  • The behavior is due to a proxy limitation regarding the addressType picklist and is not language specific.
  • Business and Home will always be displayed as the locale of the user who created the workflow.
