    Translation of error messages

    Asked by tomdekens on February 21, 2017 at 08:44 AM

    We've set up a form in Dutch and are trying to translate the base error messages. But every time we saved our changes, nothing happened. Is it possible to translate these messages?

    We only need this form in one language: Dutch.


    Thanks in advance.

    The warnings seem to be translated at the moment.

    If I am missing something, please let me know.

    That's correct, after changing our account language to Dutch, all errors appeared in Dutch too.

    But, this same form should also be cloned and translated to 3 other languages (FR/IT/ES).
    These should be separate forms, no translations on the same form, as the content is slightly different.

    We noticed that we couldn't edit/overwrite the base error messages when the account language was set to English. Any suggestions on this please?
