Is there any option to translate form data to English if it was sent in a language other than English?

    How does the email submission come in? If in the language submitted, can we translate back to english?

    But the message that the user typed in the "Message" field comes in as Spanish.  We like the ability to do this, but we would need to have someone here who could translate the "message" field back to English.

    This would be a wonderful service if you could offer it!

    Hello. We are a norwegiam condominium in Oslo with many residents from both Norway and abroad. We made several forms in english and translated them to norwegian, but we get all the forms back in english. This means that after we get the forms back, we are unable to identify the users who adress us in norwegian, and those who only speak english.

    Ideally, it would be great if in the future, the form that we receive is in the same language used by the person who sends it.

    Otherwise, we love Jotform!!!

    First of all, thank you for your kind words.
    We're glad to see that you love JotForm.

    I've moved your request to a separate thread to be able to count it as a vote for this implementation. You can find it here:

    Hi...We are in the same situation in where we have a form that is in Chinese but the person who receives the submitted forms only speaks English.  I see above that you were possibly going to create a translation component that would translate the message submitted in Chinese into English so it could be read.  Please let me know if there has been any progress on this feature and if so, how do I do it?

    Thank you!
