    Hi 

     

    My client asked me to make multi-language sites and the "Please Select" in the form's country selector option is still in English "Please Select". Is there any way to fix this to the native laguage? There will be French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.

     

    A sample is shown below...


    Thanks.

    Andrew

    Yes it is possible to translate the 'Please Select' text. In order for you to translate the text, please use the form source embed tag.

    Then look for the word 'Please Select' in the source code and replace it with the text you prefer. The code should look like something below.

    Hello,
    Thank you for the answer on how modify source code (ie. Change Country
    "Please Select" to other language). I assume that the modified code is not
    saved on the JotForm site since I would be modifying it outside of
    JotForm's form builder. In other words, any future form changes will
    require that I remake the same code changes by hand each time. Is that
    correct? Is there a way to save the custom code on the JotForm site?
    Thanks.

    Unfortunately Jotform does not have a feature that allow user to save modified code that is done externally.  Unless the modification is done internally like injecting CSS code in their system, this can be saved however.

    What I would suggest if you want to save the modification for later use is the copy and paste the code it in a code editor like notepad++ .

    If you have any other questions, please contact us again.
