    How can I setup the MAIN language for my forms

    Asked by meinplattenvertrag on December 01, 2014 at 06:58 AM

    Hello JotFormers,

    thank you so much for providing your forms! I have a question regarding the language of the forms. I´m based in germany but want to target worldwide clients. But instead in translating the form every time I´d prefer to set up english as a main language. How can I do that?

    The main problem with that is, that especially in your own field, like in the Address-Field I can´t change the option "Bitte auswählen" which means "Please Choose".

    OR is it just because of my browser language setup and US customers will get their english form automatically?

    Thanks again!

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you for the continuing use of our forms.

    If you would like to make the form multi-lingual and set a default language or even let the browser detect the current users' setting, you can find it here in our guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/298-How-to-make-your-forms-multilingual

    I hope it helps. Let us know if you need further assistance on this.

    Thank you.
