    Define what standard language to show

    Asked by eiermann on December 26, 2013 at 06:33 AM

    Merry christmas everyone!


    Is there a way that I can force the embedded form to display a specific language?

    For example on mydomain.com the form should show the English version,

    on mydomain.de the form should show the German version.


    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Hi eiermann, it is not possible with embed form. We can implement a feature for this tool but you can use it only with iframe.

    It can be like that;


    you can set dropdown and defaultLang parameters so that you can set easily. Is it ok for you?

    Great! The easiest would be if the user could choose from a dropdown what language will show as standard language and tick if menu will be hidden or if language shown will be based on user settings (browser language, operating system language). That would be awesome. Good job!

    Hi again eiermann. We have implemented this feature.

    How it works 

    - form.jotformeu.com/form/40011101833332 (sample form)

    - If you want to set the language parameter, you need to add language parameter


    - If you want to set visibility of dropdown, you need to set dropdown parameter


    - You can use this address for language code

    Hi @emrew86. Does this work when you have an embeddable iframe? My form embed code looks like this:


    I tried adding a ?language=de to the end of the url but didn't see anything. Any thoughts?

    Even though your question is related to this thread it is a separate issue so I have moved your question to a new thread here.
