    Is it possible to translate that is displayed on the Upload File button?

    Asked by mhca22 on December 20, 2014 at 08:55 PM


    So I am trying since 2 days to get the english version of my contact form, i´ve tried everything. I changed the language a few times but it didnt work. you can see that the upload buttons are german. I even tried with a proxy to create a new form but its still german (i´m fom germany). Detect user browser language is set to off. Also the editor is so buggy, i couldn´t edit it properly because when i did, the input text boxes are all over the place.

    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks in advance

    Please check the following guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/298-How-to-make-your-forms-multilingual in order to make your forms work correctly with translations you need to create them always in English and then translate each field and alert messages to the other languages.

    As far of the upload buttons, these are native to each browser and they are displayed in the default language of the downloaded browser. For example, I'm running the Spanish version of Chrome, thus the upload button text is showed in Spanish as you can see below.

    Unfortunately, as I mentioned this is controlled by the browser and we can't modify it.

    Hope this answers your question.
