    I have tested mentioned problem and I was able to reproduce it. When I added address field inside of French form builder "please select " is translated, but when I preview the form it is on English.

    I will escalate this issue to our developers and we will inform you via this thread once this issue is resolved. 

    Possible workaround to translate the 'Please Select' text is to use source code for embedding your form.

    Then look for the word 'Please Select' in the source code and replace it with the text you prefer. The code should look like something below.
