2622730 - Manage Language not showing correct text when using cote marks on the translation

Symptom

When you try to use quotation marks (") on a translation, that translation do not show correctly in the UI.

Environment

SuccessFactors BizX Platform

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Import a custom label pack in the Manage Languages that use a label translation with quotation mark (") in the middle, for example Click on the button "Open" to open the file;
  2. Check on the UI the change, and you will see that it will not display the correct text.

Cause

The reason to this issue is that we use quotation marks to determine the beginning and end of a translation in a way that we can have a comma in the middle of the translation.

Resolution

To use cote Marks in a translation on the Manage Language, you need to use not one cote mark, but a double quotation mark to the system understand that you want to insert a quotation mark.

For example to insert the translation above (Click on the button "Open" to open the file), you would need to insert on the file the text for the translation as "Click on the button ""Open"" to open the file".
