    Is there any way a URL passed parameter can change the language of a form ?  I searched the FAQ and such to no avail.

    I currently have a series of forms which are in French by default.  I have done the English translation and the 'flag' is displayed to allow users to manually change ...

    The form could be configured to follow the browser's language.  However, we have many visitors who leave their computers and browsers to default English config ...

    I would like to 'force' these forms to display in the language according to the URL. I was thinking something like would of been possible :

        https://www.jotform.com/[...]?input_language=English

    or

        https://www.jotform.com/[...]?lang=en

    But it's not working.  I'll keep searching the FAQ and such for at least hints on how to accomplish this.

     I found an article which might answer my question :

    However, clicking it gives this message :

    You can change a language of the form with the ?language= parameter.

    Use fr for French and en for English.
