    Takashi, I'm confused about how you set which translated field names are displayed to which user...

    Where is this setup? Can it be set per user group?

    Hi Adi,

    The translation of the fields happens in the metadata plugin, from the attachment.  It runs an Elasticube query to pull the list of field names, and this query is filtered down to just a single customer by the data security rule.  So the field names aren't derived per user/group explicitly, but instead from their data security permissions.

    thanks,

    Takashi

    If I understand correctly, this technique would work only if the custom fields are used as categories or as a column in a table widget.

    Is there maybe a way to make this work for translating values in a pivot?

    So for example if I had a pivot with measures named "C1" "C2" "C3" - that each company would see a different translation of C1 C2 and C3?
