Notice the tag values stay the same. It is just the surrounding language in the body that alters. The tags will fill in from the database based on the language that the client you are sending the template to is set to.
If you login to the Best Company Every account and go to Messaging > Invitation Templates, you will see the template "PORTUGUES 1st Prompt to Book Phone Screen with Rctr (Cand)" now listed there:
I created this by cloning the "1st Prompt to Book Phone Screen with Rctr (Cand)" template and then changing out the email subject and body to Portuguese instead of English:
Now, let's say I have a couple of candidates that I want to invite to interview. For the purposes of this demonstration, I have named the candidates "English Candidate" and "Portuguese Candidate", so we can easily tell the difference between the two:
For the English Candidate, I have the locale on their candidate profile set to English:
And for the Portuguese Candidate, I have the locale on their candidate profile set to Portuguese:
On this account, I have already translated the name of the interview type and the name of the location into Portuguese. You can see this under Settings > Translations (look under the "Adding Translations for Common Properties" section of this documentation page for more information on how to do that):
Now, because these candidates speak different languages, I would typically NOT want to select both of them to send an invitation to at the same time because I would need to send a different invitation template to each. BUT for the purposes of this demo, I will send it to both of them so we can see how the resulting templates look.
From my list of candidates, I will select the checkboxes next to both of their names and click the "Send Email/Text Message" button above:
I'm first going to choose my English based template named simply "1st Prompt to Book Phone Screen with Rctr (Cand)", my "By Phone" location (which we know we've set up translations for) and the "30 min Recruiter phone screen w/ 10 min buffer" (which we also know we've set up translations for). I'll leave the rest of the fields as is and click "Select Template":
The email preview before sending won't have anything special on it, but you'll notice that the tags will not have translated yet. They will still just be their representative tag values. This is because (as is the case here) you could be sending a template to people across multiple languages so we don't want to merge the values until we send it so we can merge them on a per candidate language preference basis:
Once we send the email, we can check out how the email looks in each candidate's profile on the "Messaging" view. From the "English Candidates" profile > Messaging section, we can click "View" next to the invitation we just sent out:
We'll see all values appear merged in the default English value since that is that candidate's locale/language preference:
If we do the same thing from the Portuguese Candidate's profile, we'll see that the tag values merged the Portuguese translation, not the default English:
Now, the rest of the surrounding email body is still in English for the Portuguese candidate, but that is because we chose the template "1st Prompt to Book Phone Screen with Rctr (Cand)" in the send email flow.
Now, let's go back through the send email flow, selecting both the English Candidate and the Portuguese Candidate from the Candidate list and instead choose the custom template named "PORTUGUESE 1st Prompt to Book Phone Screen with Rctr (Cand)":
Once again, the tag values will not merge in the email preview but will instead merge after you send it out and the candidate's individual language preferences are read:
Now, if we look at this invitation from the Portuguese Candidate's profile, we'll see that both the tags and the body of the email appear in Portuguese:
But on the English Candidate's profile, we'll see the tags appear in English while the rest of the body appears in Portuguese:
Again, in real life you would not want to have selected both the Portuguese Candidate and the English Candidate to send the email to at the same time because they would both need different templates. But, my hope is that this illustrates how the tags will merge the values based on the candidates' language preferences as well as how you'll need to select the proper template depending on who you're inviting to make sure the surrounding language in the body of the email appears properly.
