    Hi etiquettejulie

    Thanks for asking. You will need to clone the form (see How to Clone an Existing Form in our user guide). Unfortunately, from what I can tell, our form builder cannot translate cloned forms to another language. So you will have to manually translate the labels and the hint example in the E-mail field. The problem is, unless you embed the full source of the form into one of your own pages, you won't be able to change the sub-labels of the Full Name and Phone Number fields.

    Perhaps your best option is to load the English version in the form builder and then open another instance of the form builder in either another browser tab or window and change the language of that one to French and then build a new form, using the English version as your guide.

    If you need additional assistance with this or any other aspect of our product, please let us know. We'll be glad to help however best we can.
