    Google Recaptcha in French?

    Asked by wsisme on May 02, 2017 at 10:15 AM


    I recently used Jotforms to build out a form for my customer who has a bilingual site. I was able to adjust the placeholder text into French but I have a question. Is the Google Recaptcha available in French as well? 

    Specifically where it says "Are your a robot?" - Let me know if this is changeable.

    If I understand you correctly I believe you mean you would like to be able to change or set the language of the " I'm not a robot " text in the captcha field.


    As far as I know if we did have an option for it then it would be listed in with translating the language or warnings for your form fields. 

    I'm not quite sure that this is possible since the widget just holds the data from google's recaptcha to display it on the form and therefore doesn't have full control over it for security reasons.

    Alternatively, as far as I know the standard google captcha will change the language according to the users location.

    We offer our own captcha and recaptcha too but it isn't supported for changing the language very well since it is fairly outdated.

    I'm going to go ahead and send this as a request to our developers for improvement and maybe we can do something about it.
