How to translate field label of "custom fields" for multilingual website?

Ok, it seems that we can not understand each other.

To make things easier, please do help me on this issue with a real example:

Look at this registration page:

http://intl-webs.com/index.php/cn/component/users/?view=registration

This is a multi-language website. If switch to English language, the registration page is:

http://intl-webs.com/index.php/en/component/users/?view=registration

There is 3 extra fields on the registration form, all of them were created by AJAX Register:
您的公司或机构名称
电话
公司或机构网址

Though you can not read Chinese, I am sure you can find them.

The problem is:

When switching to English language, the fields labels of those 3 extra fields are still in Chinese language!

How to translate those 3 labels into English?

intl-webs.com/index.php/cn/component/users/?view=registration

I don't understand why it was difficult to understand from the FAQ, it's exactly explained there... :S

Thank you, I see the results, you did it.

I can not understand the FAQ because the FAQ is not clear on this issue.

In fact, you can create a new FAQ entry for "how to translate custom fields' label and description", the answer is simple:
Directly use language Key for the input box, instead of native human language strings, then translate those language Keys via language file, including the default language file.

This problem solved perfectly. Thank you. Please mark this topic as solved.
