    You can change the Language on your form by: 

    There will be a way for you to Edit the language of form fields by: 

    Note: You may also need to edit Form Warnings. 

    For Calendar text, I'm not sure if you're pertaining to this (Please see image below). But if you are, then you can only edit the text that says, Month, Day, Year. But not the text inside the Calendar, using Edit Form Languages option.


    However, if you would like to change the text inside the Calendar drop down. You need to change the language of your Form Builder before proceeding to create your form.

    What if you already created the whole form with the wrong language.  Is there any way of changing the text inside the calendar drop down after?  I have translated everything, also the error texts, but can't fix the calendar.
