    How can I edit the labels for my default language Dutch?

    Asked by JanQ on December 02, 2014 at 10:53 AM

    Hi, I have created a multilingual form, Dutch and French. I was able to add/correct all labels in French, but I notice that the default Dutch labels often have a very bizar translation, so I was looking to correct them. I cannot figure out how?

    Hi,

    If your default language is set as Dutch then you can edit the jotform fields directly in the Form Builder to make the change.

    If it is not, then you would need to click on the Language button and edit the language translations just as for French.

    You might find this guide useful for translating: How to make your forms multilingual?

    Now as mentioned, if it is set as default you would only need to edit the labels directly.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hi,

    Can you tell us the jotform that is causing these errors and the current label text -> translate to text and we would try to make the change for you?

    Do let us know if that is OK with you and if so, the details as mentioned above.

    example:

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/123456789/

    label1 -> new label

    label2 -> second new label

    If we can recreate the issue you have with translating we would raise this to our developers to check and resolve.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hi, sorry to reopen this issue, but I am creating another multilanguage form (Valentijn 2015) and again, every time I insert a translation, and hit the save button, when I preview the form, all translations are lost! I am losing several hours and my bosses are not happy.

    Not a problem in regards to re-opening it, but I have moved it to a new thread simply to avoid any confusion about the issue and where it happens.

    We will be replying to it shortly and you can find it here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/509707
