    How can i translate the "other" option?

    Asked by OTPM on April 24, 2013 at 08:55 AM

    Hi, I am working with JotForm in French. I've translated all the warning messages into French in the settings, but there is still one I can't translate: the "other" field. This field is the one you can add at the end of a question with checkboxes or radio buttons.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    To do this you will have to download and edit the form source code manually.

    As suggested by falkirks, to edit the "Other" text, although unfortunately, it is not possible to change it on source code. However, you may want to try this workaround instead:

    Thanks to you both for your answers. I am not good enough at source code editing, so I guess, I'll try the second option :)
    Have a nice day.

    Form source embedding is similar to a normal embed script but allows more flexibility. We will glad to provide assistance on it so you do not have to worry if you are not good enough with source code editing.

    To have the 'others'  turns into 'Autrue' in your checkbox textbox, you will only need to set 'Allow Other' to yes in your checkbox property options as you did before.

    Select the Source embed code


    Find the word form-checkbox-other-input then add the code below

    value="Autrue"  beside it.

     it should look like

    <input type="text" class="form-checkbox-other-input" value="Atrus"  ..other code... />
