Get parameter in URL to change language of the form

    I find this multilingual way of editing JotForms very nice, but there is also part where you must make "Thank you page" to be multilingual also. But lets say that it is not so big problem. 

    The thing is that I would like to have a multilingual form, and I can do it. But if would be much better if we could point in IFRAME with language parameter to load the form on particular language. 

    For example, lets say that our default language for the form is english. What happens when somebody wants to open germany page. In that case IFRAME will open (on germany page) form again in english, and then the user can change the language in the select menu. That is not so good solution. The better solution would be if we could point with GET parameter (?lang=de) to the german form to be loaded. 

    I couldnt find that possibility. If there is such, please accept my appology and please refer me to that tutorial page, otherwise, please make that feature, it would be great for multilingual websites.

    You can redirect your users to a different Thank You page with the conditional logic.

    You can also change a language of the form with the ?language= parameter. The form you provided has two languages English and Croatian. Here is the link for Croatian: 

    Also inside of the Translation settings you can turn ON Detect Language option.

    Hope this will help.
