    Hello JotForm! 

    I created a form in french and english, with french by default, but when I is filled it in english, it creates french PDF...

    I would like to create french pdf for french users and english pdf for english users..

    Thanks!

    Do you mean you want to create two different fillable PDF form (English form and French form) using only one form that is set in dual language? If this is the case, it is currently not possible to have two different language PDF form from one form. Creating a PDF form uses the default language of your form. If you need to have two languages version in your PDF form, you need to create two different form. You can clone your form and set up the cloned form in French. To clone a form, just follow the instructions provided in this article: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL.

    If you are referring to a different concern, please provide us more details so we can further check.

    Hello Chriistian!

    It's not exactly that, I don't need to create a pdf fillable form.  I created a bilingual form:

    https://form.jotform.ca/71714429172254

    So I would like that people that fill it in english, receive a copy pdf of it in english and the people that fill it in french receive a copy pdf in french in the autoresponder email attachment..

    Thanks for your time!

    Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment. You can only use one PDF template per form and we do not have a tool to change the PDF language whenever the user switches language to your form.

    If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you.
