Spring 11, How do I change the "Related List Label" of an object in a managed package

Super, I can now change the label  of my managed package custom objects in Spring 11.

 

But I can not figure out how do I change the "Related List Label" of an object in a managed package, it continues to show with the original name?

 

Am I missing something, its not in the translation workbench overwrite either?

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

Hi Matthias,

I have tried changing the labels for custom objects in a managed package and I can affect also the related lists.

Are you using setup -> customize  -> tab names and labels -> rename tabs and labels?

as per: http://developer.force.com/releases/release/Spring11/Custom+Labels+for+Managed+Packages

You should be able to edit the singular and plural labels. The plural label is used in related lists.

You should also be able to override related list labels for managed packages in the translation workbench for as described here:

I got it, I have to change the Aspect on the custom field to change the Related List labels. I missed that. Thanks, Matt

I'm having the same issue trying to install my managed package on a customer's instance.  They don't have Translation Workbench, so that's not available.  Can you clarify what you mean when you say " I have to change the Aspect on the custom field to change the Related List labels"?  I don't see anything for that, so if you could elaborate on what you did exactly, that would help tremendously.

Jim,

 

I'm not sure why Translation Workbench is not available to your customer.  It should be, unless your customer is on a Personal Edition, or something else? 

Available in: ProfessionalEnterpriseUnlimited, and Developer Editions

 

Anyhow, if you can get Translastion Workbench enabled or find it:

Setup --> Translation Workbench --> Override.

 

 

Select the filter criteria:

 

Package
Language
Setup Component
Object
Aspect

 

Then a little table will show below.  The first column will show the name of the Related List Labels.  The second column will be blank.  The thrid column will show you what object that the lookup is pointing to.

 

Find the corresponding lookup (row) that you want to update, and mouse over the blank cell in the second column.  You'll see the pencil icon -- double click on that cell and type in the what you want it to be named....

 

I had issues with Firefox showing all the Objects that were in the package.  So, if you don't see the object that you're looking for, I'd try a different browser.
