Event History records Starting and Ending Status values anytime an Event Action is run. Why are Event History statuses not translated even though the corresponding Event Status has a translated value?
The Starting_Status_vod__c and Ending_Status_vod__c values of the Event History object are recorded in Text(255) fields. Therefore, they are not translatable.
As a workaround, the user can do the following:
- Create two custom Picklists for Starting and Ending Status with all possible Event Status values.
- Create a trigger that copies the text values to these Picklist fields.
- Translate the two picklists.
