    Why should i add another language?

    My understanding as that adding a new language to the form is that when you want to create an additional language fot the same form, which is not my case at all. I just have 1 language, and and the warnings to show in French, language for which Jotform already provides an translation

    Beside this used to work well with a single language. I'm concerned that adding a non required language will add complexity

    By the way why do we specify language for the form?


    I have specified French, and it used to link automatically to the error messages in French...

    Also what is the option to translae the error message for


    messages are already translated by Jotform:


    they simply are not used in my current setting

    And last but not least, this would mean that I have to manually add a French translation for all error messages, when they have already been added by Jotform, sorry this does not make sense to me
