How to prevent automatic translation of input labels?

Hello,

I noticed that Splunk automatically translates input labels based on the user's locale. Dashboards with English labels are translated to German when the user locale is de-DE.

Here is an example:

 

 

<form version="1.1">
  <label>Test</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="text" token="From">
      <label>From</label>
    </input>
    <input type="text" token="To">
      <label>To</label>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
</form>

 

 

en-US:

de-DE:

Not only is the translation unwanted, the translation is also wrong. (In this context, "to" should be translated to "für" or "an".)

Is it possible to disable this kind of behavior?

I found two other posts. The solutions were 1) change each input field individually (https://community.splunk.com/t5/Dashboards-Visualizations/How-to-prevent-translation-of-labels-and-i...) and 2) change the user locale to English (https://community.splunk.com/t5/Dashboards-Visualizations/How-to-avoid-translation-on-input-field-in...). However, I would prefer a global setting to disable automatic translations.
