    how do I change form language?

    Asked by samanavitas on January 23, 2015 at 07:03 AM



    I have forms in English language and other languages (Slovene and German). Only recently I noticed that by default forms are registered as in English language. What I would like to do now is change their primary language to be the real one - for some Slovene and for some German. I do not have to translate anything really as most of this was done ages ago, but when I add real language as additional languages jotform wants me to translate things. I always want to have only one language per one form as I want to have submissions separated and also different notifications per language.


    Is there simpler way to specify this existing form is already in language other than english and nothing needs to be translated?


    Thank you.



    Do you need translated texts for form processing for Slovenian language? I really value your free service and want to give something back for your efforts.

    Please go to Preferences > advanced settings > language > edit form languages;

    Then select the original language and select "set by default"; 
    Select the English language and select "remove";

    Click save:

    You will get a warning message "There are untranslated fields on your form... " you can select ignore. This message will show up every time you save the form so this can be annoying. 

    An alternative might be just adding this css code to your forms, in order to hide the language menu on the top of your form. I believe this might be an effective and simpler solution for you:
