    Language translation drop down not working

    Asked by fastbooking on February 10, 2015 at 03:47 AM


    I cannot change the language of my form. When selecting a language from the dropdown it does not replace the labels with the translations.

    Even using the ?language=fr does not trigger the French labels to appear.

    I've already disabled the "Detect user browser language." switch (which was already disabled)

    I checked your form, and clone it as well, you are right the language translation is not working. I found out that "Italiano" is the original language that is chosen. Please try to remove all the languages by clicking the "Remove" button.

    After that you need to add "English (US)" first, then next will be the other languages. English should be the original language. I created a demo form, please check it. Although some fields are not yet translated.

    Hope this works. Thank you!
