    Hi Support Team,

    We currently have english version forms embedded on our website such as:

    We are using the translation options within JotForm to provide the Duestch (German) version of each form we use, which works incredibly well..... HOWEVER:

    I cannot figure out how to change the "Please Select" display text in the drop down field?

    Hello Mark,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. Unfortunately, the Empty Option in your Dropdown field is not yet available on Form Translations. While the feature you’re looking for isn’t currently available, rest assured we’re always working to add new services and features to Jotform. 

    I've gone ahead and escalated this as a feature request to our Developer Team. When or if it's developed depends on their workload, how viable it is, and how many other users request it. If there are any updates, we’ll circle back to this thread and let you know.

    In the meantime, as a workaround, you may create another Dropdown field for specific language. This way, you can create a condition where you check the current selected language and show the specific Dropdown field for that language. Check out the example condition for checking the selected language below:
