Is there a way to translate custom object labels?

We have Translation Workbench enabled in our orgs but I cannot find a way to translate custom object labels.  Did I miss something obvious?  I can see where we translate custom field labels but nothing at the object level.  This impacts the Tab labels, the Create New... xxx label in the sidebar, the "New xxx" related list label and the label value returned from the DescribeSObject API, to name a few.

10/22 - We figured it out.  The translations for the objects appear in a different part of the menu structure, not in the Translation Workbench, which would've been more intuitive.  For those who want to know, you have to navigate to Customize >>> Tab Names and Labels >>> Rename Tabs and Labels.  From there, you can toggle between the different languages and translate your object labels via Tab labels.  Odd but it works.

Hello Edward,

You will find everything from setup > quick search tab Rename Tabs and Labels
