    Why is some of a form's text appearing in Greek instead of English?

    Asked by calkeyboards on May 31, 2012 at 06:55 PM

    We've had a signup form for a seried of summer camps on our website as of late.  I've received two comments that the text was showing up in Greek when a customer used IE Explorer.  One is attached below.  Can you alert me as to what might be causing this and what I might need to do to rectify the situation, if anything?

    Thanks!  Have a wonderful day!

    Hi,

    Thanks for contacting us. We have two options to achieve multilingual forms;

    Just choose your preferred language at the bottom left part of the Form Builder page. In order to create forms in a different language, you must first select your preferred language before adding any form elements.

    Option 2:

    1. Create a form in english

    2. Copy full source to your web site, copy one page for English and the others page for any other language you need.

    3. You can translate to any preferred language on your web site using your favorite HTML editor.

    You can also have your forms linked to Google Translate to have your forms translated, to enable multilingual users to know meaning of fields to their langage when filling it.

    Take a look at this sample translation from Google.

    For warning messages, you can change them to any language you prefer, see the threads below for more guideline;
