  • When accessing the careers site in RMK, select the language Malay (Malaysia) (ms_MY locale), then click on View Profile, the header and footer coming from RMK is in Malay, but the login page and the candidate profile details are in English (or the default locale), when it should also be in Malay.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access the Career site in RMK
  2. Select the Malay (Malaysia) language (ms_MY)
  3. Click on Lihat Profil (view profile)
  4. It will redirect you to RCM Candidate Profile login page
  5. Header and footer from RMK will be in Malay (ms_MY) and the login page part will be in English (or other default locale)


The site locale in RMK is selected ms_MY, while RCM only supports Bahasa Melayu (Malay) (bs_BS). Hence, when clicking on View Profile, RCM will show up the default locale, but RMK will remain using the locale defined there.


To resolve this issue, it would be needed to select another RMK Site Locale, that is bs_BS, to match Malay's (Bahasa Melayu (Malay) (bs_BS)) language supported in BizX instance.

PLEASE NOTE: If you remove another locale from RMK and save it, all the configurations for it in Career Site Builder will be deleted. Hence, if both languages can use the same wording, a best practice would be to first add the bs_BS locale to RMK site, configure everything as it is in ms_MY, then delete the ms_MY locale from RMK.

If you think BizX should also support Malay (ms_MY) language and that it would be a good feature for SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management, please, submit this idea in our Influence page, where you can suggest new ideas and improvements to the SuccessFactors products.
