Modify Messages for an Entity
When you customize system entity or system attribute display names, some messages displayed by Microsoft Dynamics CRM will reference the default display names. Edit the default messages to match your customized display names.
Edit Messages by Exporting, Editing, and Importing Translations
You can edit text values for the base language exported by using the feature that allows for exporting and importing translations. When you export translations, you will download a compressed file. Extract the files and edit the CRMTranslations.xml file by using Microsoft Office Excel. You can edit display strings and localized labels. After editing the base language data in the exported file, you must compress the XRMTranslations.xml and [Content_Types].xml files and import them.
|You should evaluate each instance of the strings you want to change and look for variants that include uppercase letters or plural references. Avoid using a global find/replace.|
Manually Edit the Entity Messages
For entity messages related to a specific entity, you can manually edit these messages in the entity customization user interface. You must save and publish each message and then publish customizations for your changes to be applied.
|The messages displayed in the user interface for a particular entity may not include every instance of the entity name for that entity.|
Programmatically Update Entity DisplayStrings
The display strings are stored in the DisplayString entity. Note this entity does not contain the default display strings. The two attributes for this entity that contain text are CustomDisplayString and PublishedDisplayString. By default these attribute values are null unless the display string has been customized.
