    You are asking about why your forms are showing up in Polish if I am correct?

    Looking at your account I see your IP is based in Poland so this is the reason why.

    By default our system detects your location and matches you to that native local language, but you should be able to manually swap it to English you should be able to swap it using the Language Bar at the bottom of our website

    Thanks KadeJM

    but even if I change language in Language Bar it turns back to Polish when I click on My forms. This is a major obsticle in creating forms in other languages and prevents the user to create them (only in native language for example date box shows months in polish only)


    Can you fix that?

    Thanks for your reply but once I logg in info my forms the page switches to
    polish automaticely. I have forms also in English and cannot edit them,
    they swich into polish, for example months in calendar. It used to be
    better to edit formy in several languages when IP wasn't detected
    Could you bring the old way back?

    When you edit the form, try to check again the language if it's on the original and preferred English one. I think it does revert to Polish.

    You can see the language, still at the bottom part:

    Again, make sure you change this while in the form edit view.

    Please update us here if it's the same.

    Thank you!

    Hi Welvin

    Thank you for your suport. When I try to edit English form from Poland I get only polish date/months and whole interface. Cannot edit my English forms from Poland because of automatic IP language settings of your site.

    I believe I do understand what you mean by that and I'm sorry to see that it's created a unwanted headache. That is happening because of the location detection, but should still be switchable.

    Can you try going to a US-Based Domain (English) such as one of the following:

    - Http://www.jotform.com

    - Http://www.jotform.us

    - Http://www.jotform.ca


    If that doesn't work then what browser are you using?

    Can you try enabling your browser's "Incognito Mode" then attempt swapping the Language again?
