This is something that has been bothering me for years. Why does Episerver render the Catalog UI using the Name property rather than the DisplayName property? The Name property isn't translatable, while the DisplayName property is.
We have customers with editors all over the world who have painfully been forced to learn the Swedish names of products and categories, just because the catalog was created in Swedish. And similary, if the catalog was created in English, it's not given that everybody knows all the English translations by heart.
Why not use the translations instead to render the tree? Just like CMS does?
The only reasoning I can see for this is 1) legacy... 2) legacy and 3) there might not be a Displayname in the current languge, but then a fallback to Name could be made and indicating that it is "untranslated" (just like CMS does with grey italics).
Did you get the entire team to vote up for you? I agree this can be better. I will file a bug for Commerce team to look into
A bug has been created and a fix is under review. It might be included in 13.14 (or 13.13 if I push hard enough)
That's some good news Quan! Our editors will be very happy with this!
And yes, it is heading toward Commerce 13.13, which will be out in one week or so
Me thinking why did I not ask for this before :-O
