    Suggestion: Add Translate Option on Form Creation

    Asked by hypnotic11us on April 07, 2011 at 03:11 AM


    If I might add a suggestion here, I would like to say that, in my opinion, a great new setting for translating the custom english messages would be great, when you create your form. I think many people are having trouble with adding that custom code on their site, and for me I don't think that even is an option, being that I use Joomla for my site, and the only way to add the form is with that custom script.

    I hope I am not pushing the envelope with this suggestion, being that your service is great, and also free.

    What do you think? Could that be possible?

    Thank you!

    Hi hypnotic11us,

    Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, your suggestion will be a big step forward for JotForm considering our service caters to a global audience. A lot of our loyal users come from other parts of the world with different languages, and they would prefer to customize and use their own language in their forms. 

    I shall include this in our to do list for future consideration. We'll let you know through our website and blog once this feature becomes available.

    If you have any other suggestions or ideas, please share it with us and we'll try our best to implement them. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Is it just me or I just saw a Form Warnigs option in the preferences that takes care of translating the english messages in the form?

    Man, I couldn't believe it. At first I thought that this was probably here before, but I just didn't notice it then, and that I shouldn't have posted this suggestion. But after a bit of thinking, I now that this is new. 

    And, being almost sure that this is the case, I just want to say that you are amazing! This is great!

    After all, I just posted this today, and today I see this implemented. You have my utmost respect and gratitude!

    I'm sure that in the future JotForm will give users the posibility to change every english word to their desired translated word. Some examples are: after the message that I translated, it still says "Click to edit", some quick tools have english words embeded into them as well (like First Name or Street Address) and perhaps that could also be fixed in the properties for the specific quick tool, and maybe even the months from the date dropdown could have a preference section to be translated.

    But I must say that the new Form Warnings Option really takes care of the main translation feature. And, again, I am really impressed with this awesome service and support!

    Keep up the good work!
