    Enable translating Button Radios, Line checkbox/radio buttons widgets to other languages

    Asked by Nolasol on December 03, 2014 at 10:32 AM



    I'd like to use some widgets on my form as radio buttons and check box options.
    I like "Button Radios" and Line Checkbox/Line Radio Button widgets - but if I insert them into my form, I can't set them up as multilanguage, it means I can't translate the selectable options but only the label.

    If I use standard radio buttons and check box panel, I can set up all of options to be multilanguage... it's important, because our customers are from many country of Europe... However these standard buttons/boxes are boring a little.

    Can I set somehow these widgets to be 'multilanguage' boxes?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to use translation tool currently with some widgets. The workaround is to use native options in order to have them translated properly.

    I'm forwarding this thread as a feature request to our next level support for consideration. I cannot provide you an ETA at the moment since our developers work according to the tasks by priority. However, once this is implemented you'll be updated through this thread.

    Thank you Kiran, it would be a very useful update of JotForm to build designed, nice forms in multilanguage versions...

    (I see, widgets are "stepchildren" of developers :-) because much options are not available if I use these widgets (ie. calculated values, some calculations, multilanguage edition, giving names etc.). Widgets are very special and fantastic parts of building JotForms, so I'd be happy if handling of these tools would be equal to native options...

    Waiting for good news,

    Yes. You are right. Widgets are very special and fantastic that can help us in achieving some requirements giving additional power look to the forms than the native options. Since the request is already forwarded to our next level support, let us wait for their update in this regard.

    Thank you!
