    I have made a nice form for my online shop but I almost always deal with German customers with no or only a few English knowledge. Where can I change the text that is shown when a customer does not fill in a required field? The form is here: http://www.guenstig-kaufhaus.com/index.php?cPath=184

    You will need to use the downloaded source code to be able to change those.

    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Share Form"
    3. Click on "Advanced Options"
    4. Click on "Download Zip".

    Then unzip the file and open js/jotform.js in a text editor. If you scroll little bit, you will see these lines:

            pleaseWait:         'Please wait...',
            confirmClearForm:   'Are you sure you want to clear the form',
            lessThan:           'Your score should be less than',
            incompleteFields:   'There are incomplete required fields. Please complete them.',
            required:           'This field is required.',
            email:              'Enter a valid e-mail address',
            alphabetic:         'This field can only contain letters',
            numeric:            'This field can only contain numeric values',
            alphanumeric:       'This field can only contain letters and numbers.',
            uploadExtensions:   'You can only upload following files:',
            uploadFilesize:     'File size cannot be bigger than:'

    Change it from there and then upload all files to your web site.
