We are using SP2016 on-premise. English (United States) is the base language. I have just enabled Custom Tiles feature for a site: Enable-SPFeature -Identity CustomTiles -Url http://web_app

It created a hidden list https://web_app/Lists/Custom%20Tiles/

But the column name are:

  • Title
  • $Resources:spscore,CustomTilesList_Feature_Tile_Order;
  • $Resources:spscore,CustomTilesList_Feature_Url;
  • $Resources:spscore,CustomTilesList_Feature_Icon_Url;
  • $Resources:spscore,CustomTilesList_Feature_Audiences;
  • $Resources:spscore,CustomTilesList_Feature_TileSwitch;

It is not the first time I see these kind of problem. It usually happen when I add a new feature (e.g. add SSRS SharePoint mode) to existing SharePoint on-premise farm.

Are there any way to fix this problem?

You need to apply the language patch of your current update.

See the reference here: Custom Tiles in SharePoint Servers 2016.
