    Unfortunately, there is no option to translate the field names in your form to your preferred language after you're done building the form. The only way to achieve this is to translate (using Google Translate) and change each names manually. Only the built-in values, such as months (in a date picker), can be translated automatically. Just choose your preferred language at the bottom left part of the Form Builder page.

    In order to create a form in a different language, you must first select your preferred language before adding any form elements.

    Hope you find this post useful. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.

    Changing the language here changes the language for all my forms and also the building functions (I want to read these in English still actually).

    Is there another way around this?


    I am looking to translate month names into Chinese in the birthday picker.


    Thanks for any suggestions!

    We have recently added this feature. You can now create multi language forms in JotForm.
