The toLabel() should help you here. It is particularly useful for organizations that have the Translation Workbench enabled. Use toLabel() to return translations on
  • Regular, multi-select, division, or currency code picklist fields that have values returned by the relevant describe call.
  • Data category group and data category unique name fields.
  • RecordType names.

Hi Anudeep - toLabel() reflects correct translations only for current user language. I want to display custom picklist value russian translated values as a record to end-user. The issue I am facing is that I cannot retrieve translations using query/custom apex. The only way to get translations is using exported stf file which would be a data load approach and I want to avoid it. ALso it doesnt seem reliable solution because if picklist values are added in future there would not be a dynamic approach.
Any dynamic robust approach would help me achieve this functionality!
