    Hi-

    I am trying to create a Spanish option form for my Bibliotech registration form. I had easy success testing this for my "Detailed Camp Registration" form by leaving the form language as English and choosing Spanish as an optional language with a button at the top right of the welcome page to allow this, but realized I would need to make Spanish entries where I had typed in questions, etc. manually. When I went into the Clone of Bibliotech where I am doing my manual translation as needed I am not seeing the automated (yes, no, next, etc.. auto generated words) translating like they are in the Detailed form. Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

    The form translation is working correctly on my machine.

    When I change the language from English to Spanish, the Next and Previous buttons are translated as well.

    Please try opening the form in another browser or using the Incognito mode of your browser. There might be a cookie saved on your browser and you might need to refresh the browser to see the language changed in your form.

    Hi Adrian, 

    Thanks for your reply. 

    I just checked it again and still see the same. Are you sure you're looking at the Clone of Bibliotech Camp Registration Form. Can you check again and let me know what you see?

    Thanks, 

    Cindy

    I checked your form and I think the problem has to do with the fact that you have selected Spanish as default language of your form, please note that this does not translate the form automatically to Spanish, you will need to select English since that's the language your form is written on and then add the needed languages. 

    Here's a guide that will help you adding the languages to your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/298-How-to-Make-Your-Forms-Multilingual 

    I hope this helps.

    After all of the stuff I've figured out with your very user friendly program, I'm not sure how I wasn't able to figure this one out! The form is now working as needed. Thanks so much!
