How to translate language for extension field type text values

For the Canadian users who will be needing French translations we have covered most of the translations but noticed that the values we enter within extension fields of type text are not translated. I also noticed that these values do not show up in the language adaptation when you collect text for UI. On the other hand if the field is a pick list then I am able to go into adaptation and enter translations. Is there a way to display the values entered in a text field in a different language when the user logs in using French as login language.

For example 'Marketing Group' is an extension field on the Account object. This is a text field that will have different values for different accounts which is passed by the integration from a legacy system. How do we handle translations for these.

    Hi Sathish,

    I think for 'free text' fields this is not possible as the field can have any value - so it would not be feasible to have a translation for every single value that it could have (like N variations) for dropdown fields this is feasible and you can translate it's default value due to it's nature.

    Best Regards,
