    Hi John – I am confused. When I made Hebrew one of the displayed languages the Help and Setup menus were translated, but the top of the language settings says:
    Enable end-user languages – Help and Setup are not translated in end-user languages
    Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Turkish, Indonesian, Romanian, Vietnamese, Ukrainian, Hebrew, Greek, Bulgarian, English (UK), Arabic, Slovak, Portuguese (European), Croatian, Slovene

    This mentions Hebrew.

      Just tried this myself and noticed the same thing. This be that the language is not fully translated? (e.g. some terms are still in english)

        Have never seen Salesforce with a right-to-left language before, that was cool. I suspect that the help pages may not be translated as well (wasn’t able to find where the menu was, as I don’t read Hebrew)

    The “putting it all together” slide (as a graphic reference) would be a great addition to this page.

    In my developer Org, I changed the Default Language in Locale settings under company information, but the standard fields/objects are not translated.

    Also, manually I enabled end-user language and then through Translation workbench I created for custom fields(picklists) but these changes are also not reflected.
    Can you tell if I need to any additional settings?

    I am wondering how to handle a global company with the following scenario:
    Corp hqts located in San Francisco
    Offices in multiple other countries and time zones
    When setting business hours (as a base level of security) does the admin need to set up separate divisions and a separate profile for each?

    • JohnCoppedge June 13, 2016 at 4:24 pm #

      You would only need to define login hours for separate profiles if you wanted to limit when those users could log in- if you want to prevent login outside of working hours at each location then you would need a separate profile for each time zone.

    What would be the point of using dated conversion rates over just a fixed rate? Just for more accurate reporting when the time comes?

    • JohnCoppedge April 10, 2016 at 11:45 pm #

      Right. Imagine your cost is in usd but the customer purchased in eur- the conversion rate would have to be accurate to get a correct forecast

    Hi John..Please help
    as different blog has different ans and My exam date is very near..

    The Marketing team at UC wants to send an email to each lead received from its website.the country of incoming lead should determine the language of the email that will be sent to the can a system Admin automate this process?

    a)create an email template for each language and an assignment rule to send the appropriate template

    b)create a single email template and use translation workbench to translate and send the appropriate template

    I haven’t watched John’s video yet, but I have read the comments. There is a way to slow down a video – see: How To Play YouTube Videos In Slow Motion – Tutorial

    Hope this helps!

    I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who finds this Video very very fast (I’m French). Don’t forget that there are people not very fluent with the language you speak 😉 I’d have appreciated finding a video across sreens showing the configuration of all this (maybe this is already present in other next topics of your blog…). Anyhow, many thanks for all the very interesting and globally well made content we find on your Blog.

      I recorded most of these videos before I had much training experience- if/when I do a re-record I will definitely pace a bit slower 🙂

  9. December 19, 2015 at 5:30 am #

    This video is definitely fast, especially the first half.

    Hi John
    Can we switch a fully supported language back and forth? Eg Spanish to English to Spanish and so on.

    Indeed informative but a bit quick.

  12. July 29, 2015 at 5:06 pm #

    Very informative, but a bit too quick. I had to watch twice to make sure I caught all the detail. A pause between topics would be very helpful.

  13. sksood May 18, 2015 at 2:26 pm #

    I saw the video till the end. Seems to work for me.


  14. Rosa Attra December 29, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

    The video was still cut-off at the end. Can you please validate the issue has been fixed?

    • JohnCoppedge January 6, 2015 at 2:39 am #

      Do you see the thank you screen at the end? I don’t see a problem with the video…

  15. JohnCoppedge October 6, 2014 at 5:14 pm #

    I went for concise… maybe a bit too much so 🙂

    Extremely informative – no fluff here. You did a great job surfacing the components that matter.

    Very very fast. Suggest slowing it way down as I had to listen to whole thing 3 times and pause it to let it sink in. Just a suggestion!

    • Berglind Heath-Smith September 8, 2014 at 4:46 pm #

      I’d agree – a bit on the quick side – could slow down by a third please, leaving a pause for breath perhaps between slides 😉

      On YouTube if you click the gear gizmo (settings), you can usually adjust the speed of the video to be faster (e.g 1.25x faster, 1.5x faster or 2x faster) or slower (0.5x speed or 0.25x speed). Hope that helps!!
