By default, the configuration model of Actor (in general) is not localized. It brings the same behaviour to Forms (across all languages).

In case of email actor, localizing email template make more sense. We have request from partner that SendEmailAfterSubmissionActor property of FormContainer should be CultureSpecific, so email template (with localized text) is sent in related language.

Though we do not encourage modify the property SendEmailAfterSubmissionActor to CultureSpecific, but if developer modifies it, the EmailActor should respect localized placeholder.

  • use current language to generate the #placeholderName#
  • use correct actual value (of submission, in the current language) to replace #placeholderName#

Note: Built-in #summary# placeholder works correctly as expected.
