    We do apologize about the problem you are having with your form fields not translating properly and thank you for reporting it to us.

    I have checked your form and found that I am able to replicate this mentioned issue you are having with your form translations not working properly. 

    Upon further investigation I found you have the field hover text in french but, when looking at your language translation that is set differently for netherlands it still shows in french.

    I'm sending a bug report about this to our developers so that we can get this problem fixed for you as soon as possible and we will notify you here as soon as it's resolved.

    I looked at your problem more, and I found the cause of this issue, it is one extra empty space in your original hover text. So to fix this just remove that extra space:

    It is one extra space right before the FR, remove that and it should work fine.

    You can check my test form that I clone from you: https://form.jotformpro.com/71495628624970

    Let us know how it worked.

    Thank you!
