    Hi! Please tell me I don't have to manually translate all the warnings :( they are not showing up in German even though the form language is set to German. Why? I create forms in multiple languages and this is a must.

    Thank you for reaching support,

    Unfortunately, you may have to customize the Form warnings to the translation that you wish:

    Here is the related guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/61-how-to-change-form-warnings.

    I hope that helps.

    Best.

    It would make sense for the form warnings to be in the language of the form automatically, is there a reason this didn’t happen?
    Also, I actually need the form warnings to be in English for the English speakers and German for the German speakers – is this not possible?

    Hi there,

    If your form default language is German then you can replace the warnings in English with the German language. Then you can add the English language in your form by following the instructions in the guide below.

    https://www.jotform.com/help/298-how-to-make-your-forms-multilingual

    Each translation has a separate warning section where you can add the translations.

    Initially, you'll have to add the warnings in the required language once. Should you need further assistance then please let us know.

    Thanks

    thanks! but can you tell me how to get the form to generate default warnings in the default language? Or do I always need to translate them?

    Hello there,

    Some form warnings in selected languages translate automatically. See example below.

    Language - Chinese:1612964657_6023e331d810a_34.png

    However, if some form warnings do not have translation, you have to manually add them.

    Should you have further inquiries, kindly let us know.

    Thank you.
