I was implementing CRM for a manufacturing company which had their operations in multiple geographies and wanted the CRM solution to be available in different languages. We do have ability to enable languages and get the translations done.
Everything is fine if we have only one environment to work with; which is never the case. We always have Dev, QA, UAT and Production environments at a bare minimum. The limitation with exporting language translations is that we can only import the translations to the Organization from which we have exported it.
What this essentially means is that if we export the translation from Dev then we can only import them back to Dev, then the question arises How do we move these translated text from Dev to Production?. There is a very simple solution to it.
Note: I would assume that there is a solution which contains all the customizations which will later be moved into other organization
Important Note: CRM allows to import translated text back into the same organization it was exported from.
After extracting the XML, there should be two files for translation i.e. Content_Type and CRM Translations.
After you have imported back the translated text into Dev, just export the customization solution and the exported solution file will contain all the translated text which you can go ahead and deploy to any organization, enable the language and you should be good to go.
