How to translate or to modify the transation of "Loading...", which shows on a portal page while it is getting loaded



The purpose of this article is to guide users on how to translate the message Loading... that shows while a Service Portal page is loading. For example:

  1. Go to
  2. Note that before the portal page completes loading, a blank page with the word "Loading..." will show.

Users may be inclined to think that a sys_ui_message with Key = "Loading..." will need to be modified in order to make the translation. However, this sys_ui_massage won't get the job done, at least not in Portal. 

The correct sys_ui_message record that must be modified has Key = 'Loading', instead of Key = 'Loading...'


  1. Navigate to System Localization > Messages.
  2. Build a filter that returns all sys_ui_message records where Key = Loading (/
  3. Find the language that you want to translate.
  4. Change the column Message to the translation.
