I am creating a multilingual SharePoint Online site, so I activated site language on the site and added Czech as a language.
I am able to translate pages without issue and the correct page language displays when a user goes to the page.
The issue I have is to do with lists, specifically the managed metadata field.
Language Packs have been activated in the termstore and Czech has been added as a Working Language.
I have then added the Czech translation against various terms.
The following scenarios then occur:
- When a Czech user goes to the list the base language (English) is displayed for the term items
- When a Czech user edits the value in managed metadata field, they see the Czech translation, but when they select it, the displayed value is back in English
- When a Czech user performs a search using the Czech word nothing is found
- When a Czech user performs a search using the English word the item is found
note : The search is done using the standard sharepoint search (at the top) and also when using the Modern Search webpart extension (v3) link to Modern Search Webpart
Is this expected behaviour?? if not I would be extremely grateful if someone could assist or direct me in the right way to rectify the issue?
If it is expected behaviour what is the point in have translations for termstore items if the ONLY time they can be seen is when a user edits a field in the list??
