    Hi, 

    I checked the form in your website and tried the French language translation.

    I was able to see all the fields translate to French 

    Can you please tell us which specific field is still not being translated?

    Thanks.

    As far as I know our Language translation Tool works for some of these but not all. This happens because the ones that do get matched with populated language translations are occurring because we have translations in our local files for those whereas others do not. So this is why some work and are automatically translated for you and others do not asking that you manually do this.

    One field is not translated in the Spanish language. Majority of the fields is not translated on Japanese, and a few to Russian. 

    If you need help, please let us know!

    Thanks
