    Translation for "Form Calculator" widget?

    Asked by richardax on February 22, 2017 at 08:07 AM

    Hi, I am building a multilingual form in which I use several calculations, using the "Form Calculator" widget.

    However, these fields do not show up at the translation page. Is there no possibility to translate widget labels?

    That's correct - Widgets are not a part of our multilingual feature yet. The reason behind this is because widgets reside on their separate iframes with their respective markups.

    Since the last form you edited (70101530507339) only has 2 languages in it, I guess the only workaround for the time being is to show both languages in the Calculation Widget's label (e.g. Calculation / Beräkning).

    What I can do is to remove the calculation widgets and add condtional update/calculation to a regular field instead.

    Just a bit more work but it's doable.

    That is also a solution, if that type of calculation works for you, it will be much easier to translate all fields since they are included in Translation process.

    If you need any assistance please let us know.

    Thank you!
