    Hello Thierry,


    You need to download the full source code to translate
    the calendar months.
    To download the full source, open your form in JotForm then
    do the following:

    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Embed Form"
    3. Click on "Source" and then click on the "Download" link

    The calendar script should be in the js folder named calendarview.js

    In the calendarview.js file you should see the following:

    Calendar.MONTH_NAMES = [
      'January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August',
      'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'

    Hi Ben,

    Since you have already downloaded the full source code of your form, you will need to re-upload all the files into your web host.

    If you have more questions or clarifications please let us know, we are always here to help.

    When uploading to your webserver.

    Just be sure to preserve the directory structure.

    1.Download & extract the zip archive.

    2. Edit calendarview.js as per my colleagues instructions.

    3. upload the Formulaire_d_inscription_PROPRIETAIRE.html (you can rename this to anything you want) to your webserver. Many web hosts often have a users web content in a folder public_html. Though this is NOT always the case.

    4. Upload the css & js folders to same location as Formulaire_d_inscription_PROPRIETAIRE.html ( if you already have a css or js folder at that location on your webserver, just upload the files contained within css and/or js to those folders on your webserver.

    5. your form will then be available at http://mywebserver/pathto/ Formulaire_d_inscription_PROPRIETAIRE.html


    The changes you made to calendarview.js will automatically become available to your JotForm, you wont have to make any other changes to link it with the form.


    Hope that helps. Post back if any of that isnt clear.

    Thanks, your answer is quite clear. But my problem is a bit more difficult. I explain, the form is embed by a HTML Snippet in a iWeb page with my layout and I want to keep it like it looks. If I copy/paste le html code of Formulaire_d_inscription_PROPRIETAIRE.html  without the <head> tags in the HTML Snippet of my iWeb page, the form doesn't look the same : all the "stuff" are there but it's ugly like missing some CSS ref.

    How do I keep the great look made with Jotform ?

    Hope my problem is quite understable, so you can find me a solution.

    Best regards

    Hello Ben,

    Can you provide us the URL where your form is embedded?  This may be an issue where the referencing isn't mapped properly that's why the CSS is not reflecting in the layout.
