    setting a default langauge other than english

    Asked by Klokhuis on April 07, 2014 at 04:27 AM


    I have mademy  original form I am making in Dutch, and now wish to make an English version - but the assumption of the programme is that the primary language is always English, so now its asking me to translate my original (dutch) into Dutch!! The set as default button doesnt get around this glitch.

    Im sure you guys are on this one, when its solved as this will then prove be a pretty awesome tool. - also allowing translations of the auto responder of course - these two ommissions are stopping me utilising the langauges function at the moment.


    many thanks

    Hello Paul,

    Sorry about that.

    To create forms primarily in your language of choice (dutch), first change the form builder's language by scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting the language you want to build the form in (shown in the illustration below) - then you can add English in as the secondary language..

    By default, the language setting is always English -

    Let us know if this gets around your current issue -and let us know the limitations of the feature should you meet any.
