Summer ‘16 Translated Terminology Update


As an administrator of a Salesforce org, we want to notify you of an upcoming change to translated terms that may impact your organization.

What is the change?
With the Summer '16 release*, we are updating some terminology, including tab and field names, for our Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Korean, Swedish, and Thai language users. You can find details about the changes made for each language by reviewing the Summer ’16 Updates to Translated Terminology knowledge article. The knowledge article provides each term in English, the old translation, and the new translation.

*Currently targeted for June 2016; date subject to change

How will this change impact me?
These terminology changes will be rolled out to all organizations with the Summer '16 release. For details on when your organization will be upgraded to Summer'16, please visit

If your organization would like to keep the current standard tab and field labels, system administrators can explore options to change the name back using our rename tabs and labels functionality. For more information, see "Renaming Tab and Field Labels" in the Salesforce online help.
