    The Required warning text appears in the wrong language

    Asked by metehan711 on November 24, 2013 at 10:57 AM


    Firstly, I really appreciate what you did by creating such a beautiful and easy form designing website. It fits very well to my needs!

    About my question: I hae one form in English and one in Turkish (imported from Emailmeform.com). However, their languages are exactly inverse: f.g. Turkish form says "This field is required" while English one says the same but in Turkish!

    I checked language section of both forms, changed them to "Detect user browser language" so there is no language choice or buttons. But it remained the same...


    What can I do about it? 

    Thank you...

    Thanks for contacting us.

    I checked your form and I was able to see what you are talking about: 

    However, you can correct that by translating the Required field from the Advance Settingsl. I cloned your form in turkish and edited the warning to turkish it fixed it:

    So, to be able to translate the warning text to the right language please follow this guide: How to Change/Translate Form Warnings

    So, you need to apply the same solution to both of your forms.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you still need assistance with this or kindly open a new thread to post unrelated inquiries.

    Hi, I waited a while for the response but it worths! Thank you, it helped me a lot. But just a suggestion, I wish there was a way to import all these warning messages simply from an available language. That would really facilitate the work. Anyway, thanks for the solution :)
