2811085 - Language adaptation behavior in case of Renaming fields

Symptom

You are logged into the system with a language other than English, lets say German in this case. You have a standard field which you want to rename. Upon saving, the new name does not get saved. Instead it stays as the original German name.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into the system in German.
  2. Go to a work center view.
  3. Try renaming a field in adaptaion mode. 
  4. End layout changes and you see that the field is not renamed.

Cause

This is because there is language adaptation applicable for that field. Hence, the target text overwrites the renamed text for that field.

If there is no target text available in the language adaptation for that field, the renamed value will be saved.

Resolution

You can either remove language adaptaion for that particular screen for that field or do not provide a target text for that field.
