0022 - Translations

Translations provide a means to create alternative text in different languages to support a multilingual deployment of open metadata.

The TranslationDetails holds the translation for a single language. It includes the language and locale. There are explicit properties of displayName and description for holding the translation for the name/displayName and description properties respectively. Any other string properties that need a translation are added to additionalTranslations.

The TranslationDetails are linked to the original entity using the TranslationLink relationship.
