    What is the right algorithm for building a multilingual form?

    Asked by KarinaKukk on January 10, 2017 at 03:17 AM

    Hey, I need to create a form on Russian and Estonian. At the moment I have built form in English. Can I somehow make 2 duplicates of an English form and implement the other languages? I tried to translate text strings on other 2 languages, but got stuck with the implementation of those. Also, JotForm pretranslated Russian fields for the countries names and languages are a mess, how can I edit these translations to implement those later? Again, I tried, but stuck with this. What is the right order to create 3 forms on different languages?

    If you wish to make ONE form in multiple language, that is possible by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/298-How-to-Make-your-Forms-Multilingual 

    So basically, your users can switch to different languages, you will also translate the text in your fields with your own translation.

    If you want to have 3 forms with different language, then you can clone your forms. Here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/27-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-your-account. You can then directly write each of your form in any language you like. 

    Let us know if that works.
