    How about using a localized calendar widget? You can set the language to German in it so the date picker will be shown in German language.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if there anything else we can assist you with.

    Since that sub-label is not from a widget,  you can just double click the text and put or paste the translated word.

    In regards to the months, it is possible but you will need to use the language tool. This tool allows the user to have an option to view the form on different language. But in order to use properly, create the form in English then use the tool to select a default language.
