    Translate form error messages

    Asked by Novoendereco on December 18, 2014 at 06:32 AM


    My name is Dominic Santos, and I work for a Portuguese company called Novo Endereco.

    We are using JotForm to create forms and questionnaires for our clients, we have clients who are English, Portuguese and French.

    Due to embedding the forms in our site we found it easier to make the forms separately translated for each language, at the moment we have made the english and portuguese versions.

    The only thing that we can't seem to translate, even after defining the language of the form to portuguese, is the error messages, for example, this field is requires and please fill in the required fields;

    Being Portuguese speaking clients they would not understand the english error, is it possible to translate these fields? or is it not yet possible on JotForm?

    Best Regards

    Dominic Santos
