On multilingual Drupal site, entities' titles and descriptions on overview pages such as ( Content types, roles, vocabularies, menus, or views ) do not display in the active language but remain in the language they were created in, even after being translated.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a multilingual Drupal site.
  2. Add content types, roles, vocabularies, menus, or views.
  3. Create titles and descriptions for these entities in one language.
  4. Translate the titles and descriptions of some of these entities.
  5. Switch to another language and observe that the titles and descriptions do not appear in the current language, but only in the original creation language.
