    Do you support Right to Left languages in forms

    Asked by bgi on May 25, 2014 at 07:03 AM

    Hi,

    I can see that there is an option to add a language called "Hebrew" and to supply translations, but I can't see anywhere to define the form as RTL so that labels appear on the right of the input boxes.

    I like what I see in JotForm and am about to sign up for a paid plan, but I can't do it without RTL support so please let me know.

    Regards,

    Warren

    Thank you for contacting with us.

    Sorry to say that Jotform doesn't support Arabic, Hebrew or any other RTL language currently.

    Please Download this file, translate it to Hebrew and send it back to us if you want to view Jotform in Hebrew language.

    Here's a workaround for your problem:

    You can try Injecting Custom CSS to make the form text display from Right to Left. To Inject a custom CSS in your form styles, go to:

    1. Setup & Embed > Preferences;

    2. Then click the form styles tab. 

    3. Add the CSS  code below as shown in the screenshot below.

    .form-sub-label {

    direction:rtl;

    unicode-bidi:bidi-override;

    }

    .form-all {

    direction:rtl;

    }

     

    Please contact us again if you need further assistance.

    Inside of the form templates gallery I created one template form that you can use. 

    Inside of that form I used Custom CSS that will enable Arabic language from right to left. Custom CSS used inside of this form can also be applied to Hebrew language.

    You can find my form inside of the Form Templates gallery:
