    Is there anyway to make Google Translate work with JotForm's?

    Asked by BioFall on January 30, 2011 at 01:42 PM

    I use Google Translate on my site and it works great.  The only problem is that it doesn't translate my JotForm's.  My guess is that this is because the form is from the JotForm server's and not my own website (although I am not sure).

    Is there any workaround to get Google Translate to translate my forms?

    If you use the full form source code, the form question labels will be part of your site, so the Google Translate should also work on them.

    Here is how you can get full form source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Code"

    3. Click on "Source" button and copy it to your web site.

    Exactly what I was looking for.

    Except now it looks like JotForm is pulling the CSS from my websites CSS file rather than JotForm.  Is there anyway that I can make the font and things stay the same?

    Right now the text box's are supersized for some reason.

    The CSS style names are probably same on both your site and form. Unfortunately there is no easy solution for that. 

    Look at the bright side: the form now fits better to your site. :)
