    Hi Steve,

    I have a Notes DB that have a column with french or English terms from a drop down.
    (Ex : whe napplication is in French : Dos, in English : Back)

    I’ve decided to create a custom list in SharePoint and create a column with Managed Metadata. I have the english version of the term and the french one.

    In Notes Migrator (Trial version), I’ve mapped thoses two columns. The problem is that Notes Migrator is unable to find the french term when it’s the french word recorded in the Notes DB. The english Word is OK.

    Error message : Failed to write Managed Metadata field ‘XXXXXXX’ – Could not find term ‘Dos’ in Term Store

    Is there a way to make Notes Migrator recognize the term’s french version ?

      You can use the “Default Language LCID” on the Managed Metadata column to control this. This should be an integer representing the Language LCID to use when searching the Term Store (example: 1033 for U.S. English).

      If this does not work you might want to open a Quest support case, so we can get an enginner to look at your detailed example.
