    How can I have my form default to multiple languages

    Asked by dectro on May 01, 2015 at 01:10 PM

    Hello, I created a form in English that I have embedded in my wordpress site. Now I would like to translate in French. I have two options:

    1. I clone the English Form and translate it in French. In this option I would have two embed two forms in two different pages in Wordpress. However, I'm worried about the hassle of doing reports since I would have two different data sources. Is there anyway that I can merge them easily.

    2. I could use the multilingual tool. But if I do that, will I have a direct link to the right language when I send the form to a student. For example, I would not want the default form to be in English when I'm sending the link to a french speaking student. In other words, I need two links. Is this possible?

     

    Let me know what to do please.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The form will default to whatever language you have set as the default:

    If you need two different defaults, you would indeed need two different forms.  Your first option is the only one that would work in this case.  There is no way to change the default language of the form based on the link provided.

    To merge the data, since the forms are basically the same, you can merge the data into a single CSV file:

    Then import the combined data back to whichever form you would like:
