Field translations translate individual commerce objects fields, such as Products, Promotions, or Categories in Optimizely <<product-name>>. Translations can be managed at the record level, using the **Field Translation** icon and or through the **Field Translation** screen, where all field translations are stored. Changes can be made in either location, as they linked back to the same database table. Use the steps below to provide any necessary translations.


Translations can be included as part of an integration job or they can be managed manually.

  1. Go to the **Admin Console**,

  2. Go to the screen that contains the field needing a translation.

  3. Click **Field Translation**.

  4. A new window appears with the languages assigned to the website. Select the desired language to translate.

  5. Enter in the translation for the **Base Value** in the **Translation** field.In this case the Base Value is "Audio", so "l'audio" would be entered into the **French** field.


    The **Base Value** appears in the top right of the **Translations** window.


  6. Click **Save**.

  4. Select the **Source** table that contains the fields to be translated.
