    You should probably get zipped form source code and then edit the JavaScript files yourself.

    On the JotForm Form Builder:
    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Share Form"
    3. Click on "Advanced Options"
    4. Click on "Download Zip".
    5. Open js/jotform.js file and edit this line:
    required:           'This field is required.',

    Thank you!I think this could be a future request,edit this message string directly from the jlot form creator!

    anche io ho lo stesso problema. Ho modificato il file jotform.js, l'ho caricato sul server, ma non funziona.

    Quali sono i passaggi corretti da esguire ?

    Make sure to find all instances of the "This field is required".

    Is there a way, to change the message-language on the Jot-site?

    My Website is build with Jimdo - there is no way, to upload the changed jotform.js-File.


    Thanks a lot!

    Unfortunately no, there is no way to change that on the JotForm form builder.
