    How do you translate field alert messages?

    Asked by Gialpi on June 26, 2015 at 06:35 AM

    When you put some required field, the user who does not fill the field receives an error message which is in English. How do you personalize error messages? We would like to translate them in italian if possibile.

    Thanks and regards

    Mauro

    I took a look at your jotform Mauro since you should have seen that option when translating it originally, or when setting the default language.

    Now you could just translate the form warning by following the steps here: How to Change Form Warnings, but I would advise not to do it like so. Instead, what you should do is to set the language of your jotform.

    You can see more about this here: How to make your forms multilingual?

    When you do it like so, you will be offered to translate the form warnings as well as all other fields, while in the same time you are not risking to get suspended by our anti-phishing tool, which is known to sometimes suspend a form if the language is not set properly and it shows a behavior such as of the phishing form.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions and we would be happy to assist.
