I have added help text for a template field in the Short Description field, Japanese version. When the item is created in the Japanese version, the help text is not seen.

Using Sitecore 9.2

Template Field: enter image description here

Item: enter image description here

While not immediately intuitive, this is by design.

The help text follows the client language, not the item language. So if your user has his or her content editing language settings set to "Japanese", they will be presented with the Japanese help text. For any item language version.

Unfortunately I can find no official link or reference that states this, so you're going to have to take my word for it ;-)

  • but is there any workaround. This is only a sinle language site. So the client language is set to Japanese. Creating/Editing is easier that way.
