    Are your referring to some kind of validation rule that once rule has been met a trigger will fire up? Unfortunattely I don't see that as an option in Jotform builder other than making a condition in a form. But actually that is a good idea that we can request our developer to include in their feature-request list.

    Well, no my question was regarding adding multilingual form warnings to the form. Somehow i have figured out in the form settings under preferences. But, if accidently i have suggested a new feature, that would be great and you should surely incorporate it at your end.

    But, i see only one set of form warnings which i can change it to Arabic.

    I have created one form with equal number of english form fields and Arabic form fields. I have used conditional logic to show/ hide the english/arabic form fields. In such case can i have English / Arabic form warnings for the same form on show-hide conditions.

    Kindly suggest.

    Hi Bhanu,

    You can already change the language used by the form. 

    This is done by changing the Language settings when you are logged in to JotForm

    For example, I change my language to Turkish


    Use this guide to change the form warnings/error messages on the form.


    And yes, you can use the form's condition logic to have an interchangeable form -- that switch language by using the SHOW/HIDE condition of the fields.
