Translations for Quick Action "Informational Message" and "Field Label" not supported properly in Translations Metadata API type
Last updated 2020-12-02 ·Reference W-4672221 ·Reported By 5 users
Some customers may have observed the following error concerning the translation of global quick action fields.
<label>My translated success message</label>
<label>My translated field label</label>
" Duplicate translation specified for QuickAction:MyAction1"
The quickActions field on the Translation metadata type (https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_translations.htm) does not support full definition of the data that is allowed to be customized by a user in the Setup UI. Specifically, when translating a Global Action, the user can specify a translation for both a Field Label and Informational Message (selected as "Aspects" in the Setup UI), but the metadata XML that is generated for this when the Metadata is retrieved is structured as follows, with the same "name" for each of these fields:
1. Create a global quick action
2. Translate Title
3. Translate Success Message
5. Have invalid metadata
- Perform manual deployment
