Problems in non-english sites

Nov 19, 2010 at 8:28 AM

We tested successfully in SharePoint Foundation 2010 using English Sites. When we use german sites, create the columns in the english "view" of the site it also works. But as soon as we switch to the german "view" of the site and translate the columns in german (the english column names stay the way they are for people who see the english "view" of the site), the columns are not updated anymore by the event receiver.

If we start with english sites and then translate the columns to german in the german "view", then everything works fine.

May it be that in your event receiver code you refer to the columns to be updated using their title (which can change) instead of their id (which afaik cannot change when translated)?

Same problem with WSS 3.0 German. Installation does not create «Custom Columns». The columns are under «Hauptkontakt- und Kalenderspalten» created as «Benutzerfeld 1», «Benutzerfeld 2», «Benutzerfeld 3» and «Benutzerfeld 4» an do not work as described..  :-(
Any hint do bring it up and runnig?
