    We are being asked to provide our form in another language. We don't have an option to translate an input table. I have translated everything else, but the input table does not show available to translate.

    Is this possible and I'm missing it or is this not possible?


    Thank you

    I couldn't reproduce the problem on my form. The input table appears on translation as expected.

    However, I noticed that the translation doesn't work for this table on the actual form.

    The reason why is because you have used HTML codes in the rows for that table. This breaks the translation.

    To fix it, remove all the HTML codes in your Row options or you can paste all the options again and make sure it doesn't come with HTML codes. Example:

    This worked for me on my test. Example, I translated the first 4 options and this is how it appears.

    By the way, let me also escalate this to our developers so they can work on a solution so HTML codes in the ROW options won't break the translation. We'll inform you here once this is fixed. For now, you can apply the suggested fix above.
