    It would be great if the dropdown for a form with multiple languages didn't display the language in English (or whatever the primary language is set to), but instead rendered the labels in the native language they were describing. 

    For example: 

    中文 instead of Chinese

     

    It does do that for Spanish, so it would be great if it could work for other languages as well! Thanks for considering!

    I will raise your request to our developers.

    For now I can only provide you a workaround with CSS. 

    Add this CSS code to your form to change Chinese to 中文.

    .dd-placeholder.zh {

    font-size:0px;

    }

    .dd-placeholder.zh:after {

    font-size:11px;

    content:"中文";

    }

    .lang-list.light li.zh {

    font-size:0px;

    }

    li.zh:after{

    font-size:11px;

    content:"中文";

    }

    Here is my form: https://form.jotform.com/70682731497970

    Hope this will help.
