Tip #1448: Never delete columns in translation

Another day, another guest Q&A post. (Have a tip of your own? Send it to jar@crmtipoftheday.com)


I saw the Easy Translator  · XrmToolBox was updated, so thought I would give it another try on our app which is in 14 languages. Tanguy, can i delete rows and tabs that do not require translation? Or will it cause problems?

Never delete columns. But you are free to delete rows and tabs

What Tanguy was referring to is Excel file that you get when you export customized table and column text for translation with Power Apps. Tabs contain types of tranlsations required, rows refer to individual strings requiring translations while columns contain languages. So, yes, Steve would have to look at all 14 columns.
