    I had to hit "translate from German to English"...and then many of the words were changed to gibrish.

    I have checked your last edited form and see that it is displaying in English only. Could you provide us with more information on the issue that you are referring to and the link to the form so that we can assist you further.

    I included a screen shot which clearly show german titles on my page. The forms themselves remained in English. When I went in to look at individual responses, I saw that the names had been translated from German to English…Susan Liebgott became Susan Love God….very strange.
    Here are more screenshots…look at #88 with the translate link at the top.

    As for the translation, it's a bit strange, but I got assigned to a similar thread a while ago. The issue is already fixed for the user, but if the issue persists to your end, please do the following:

    1. Close Jotform from your browser.
