A field translation allows you to define a relationship between values in the source file and corresponding values that are used for the destination field. For example, assume the source file for an integration contains numeric codes that represent specific salespeople. However, you might want to use names for the Salesperson ID field, rather than the numeric code. You can use a field translation to accomplish this.
Field translations can be local or global. You can create local translations in the Integration Mapping window to use in the current integration, or you can create global translations that can be used with any integration.
Local translations are created directly from the mapping window. A local translation is available only for the specific field and is used in a specific destination mapping. Refer to Creating a destination mapping to create and use local translations in a destination mapping. Refer to Creating global translations for more information about creating global translations.
