Is there a configuration to limit the max chars of shortname for other languages (proactive languages)?. Currently the configuration in customer settings works only for English. Also, using custom validator does not seem we have access to proactive languages without using SQL via the framework. If not, please please advise if there is any other way to do this. Ho about pre-defined validator, does it support other languages than english?
This should be submitted as a bug. The proactive translation popup should respect the short name configuration.
I believe the proactive translation popup us currently looking at the database meta data to know how many characters to limit the field to. It wouldn't be supported, but as a workaround you may be able to update the database to the length of your choice and see if it works.
