Unable to translate progress bar texts - not shown in translationsAsked by zorik on November 19, 2014 at 04:44 PM
I'm using the progress bar too and I'm trying to find a way to translate it.
It's says here that it should appear in translations but it doesnt, can you please see why?
I do apologize for the issue that you are experiencing with translating the progress bar. I was able to replicate the issue that you are experiencing of not seeing the Progress Bar in the translation option.
I have passed on this issue to our development team. Any update will be posted to this thread.
While that is being looked into you can download your form source and modifying the text.
Thanks, actually I tried also downloading the source, but somehow there I also dont see the english text.
Please look for the file named as: setupProgressBar.js
You should be able to find the English text there.
Let us know if you need further assistance.
thanks, but you still check if it's possible to change it via translations, right?
Yes, Shadae has already escalated this thread to our developers.
You'll be notified here when an update regarding this matter shows up.
Any news about the translation issue?
I'd like to know if the solution will be in the near time or I will need to download the files and do the changes in the code.
While I was waiting for your answer I tried to download the files and find there the file setupProgressBar.js as you mentioned in your previous response.
There is no such file there. In the main HTML file I see that this file is on your server,
even though I downloaded all the source files.
Please help me with that.
Unfortunately, there are no updates at this time regarding this issue.
I see that it has a high priority, so hopefully you can receive a response soon.
Regarding your question about the script. You can download the file here: http://widgets.jotform.io/progressBar/setupProgressBar.js please note that since you'll be modifying it. You need to update the script src value to the URL of your translated version in your form's source code in order to include your translations.
If you need further assistance, please let us know.
any news about the translate solution?
i downloaded the files but this is very limiting, so I prefer to keep the files in your server..
meanwhile I bought a premium package, so I hope a paying customers get faster developments :)

I see that the assigned developer is still currently working on it.
We appreciate your patience with this issue and you'll be notified here as soon as an update shows up.
Thank you for your patience.
The Progress bar is loaded to your form from a different location - which is why the source code download will not serve its content.
However, since the widget cannot currently integrate with the Form Translator, we've made it possible to change the progress bar text to meet language constraints -
Please check it out and share your experience.
