    Asked by ICFforms on November 07, 2013 at 11:50 AM


    I have been playing around with this a little and once I corrected all of the warnings, there was still some text on the form that was coming up still in English even though I had submitted a the translated version. Also, in the form I was working on, we have a an HTML text box with a lot of information but none of it had been translated and it was prompted to me in the warning area to correct translation for it.

    Thank you!

    Free text area does not appear on the translation wizard but we will implemented it soon. 

    Which language did you have a problem? Can you tell us the form url please?

    I was just testing it out with Spanish but we are an international company and imagine that we will want to use all of the language that you currently have an possbily more in the future.  Here is the URL of the form that I was working with: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/32724033618955


    Thank you!

    Thank You for the additional Information. I also looked into this and can confirm that it is as you mentioned for your form. 

    I tried this on a separate form and it looks like this has since been corrected. If you look on my test form here http://form.jotform.co/form/33105469677866 which I made similar to yours you can now see that the field which is like yours that previously did not translate is now translated. 

    I would advise checking your translation for the field and updating it then resaving to see if this helps then test it again.

    However, the only one that looks like it is still not working is the HTML Field since it stays the same in English.

    Great!  I will take a look at this.  Do you by chance have an ETA on the free text field to be added to the translation wizard?  We are really exicted about this feature but we use that field a lot through our forms.


    Thank you again for your help!
