    My embedded form has English month names in the date item. How can it be localized?

    It seems the problem is not solved... without changing anything, the months are set back to english, even when using iframe integration :(

    any other way to fix this?

    Hi Chibula

    Did you re-embed the form after making the changes? . When you use the iFrame method, everytime you make a change , you should re-embed the form into your page and remove the old one.

    I didn't make any changes to the form...

    It simply stops to work after some time. I tried to re-embed (made a change just for the change's purpose), but still the months are shown in English. The same happens in Preview on Jotform.com.

    Here you can open the form directly: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/20774669032356?

    On my end, I can see in the preview of your form a non-english version of the months...
