Salesforce Custom Label Translation

Custom labels in Salesforce are developer-defined labels that can hold text values which are referenced in Apex classes, Visualforce pages, or Lightning components. These labels enable developers to build multilingual apps by storing text values in different languages.

Custom Label Translation Salesforce

To begin translating custom labels, you must first ensure that the languages you want to translate into are enabled in your Salesforce organization. This is done through the Translation Workbench, where you can add and manage languages for your Salesforce instance.
