Item policy translations
In Alma the Institutions have no possibility to add the translations for the policies. In multilingual consortia environments the only possibilities are to display in Discovery the policy description in English or to add all description translations in the same field. Neither these solutions are user friendly.
The translations should be distributed from the Network.
@ Ex Libris: this is working now, please close to release the votes.
This seems to be part of the Alma August 2023 release

Network-Zone Translations of Policy Names and Descriptions Are Now Distributed to Institutions
While there is an option for translation in the Alma of the NZ, the translated text does _not_ show up in Primo VE of the NZ, either.

See on screenshot how this looks in the IZs. There is no option for translation in 'Edit'.

still are displayed in English when we look at the German, French or Italian version of the interface.
Fulfillment configurations are centralized and managed by the Network in our consortium.
In the NZ Alma configurations > Fulfillment > Advanced policy configurations > switch for example to Policy Type: “Due Date”. There is the globe option where you can add the translations, but these cannot be distributed or added manually in the IZs. Please add the ability to support a multiple languages feature for the distribute mechanism.
In my opinion this should be handled as a bug fix, not a feature request.
