    You can switch the language by using the form translation tool, this gives you the capability to make a multi-language form.

    Another approach is to change the language of your account to french, this will make all available element use the french language by default

    The steps given by my colleague Sammy above will help in setting up your Form Builder to a different language - the change is not done however instantly so you would need to refresh the page.

    I however presume that you are looking to change the language of the calendar field on your form, in which case you should take a look at the following guide: How to make your forms multilingual?

    Do let us know of course if you have any questions along the way and we would be happy to assist with them Vonique :)

    I took a look at your jotform and tried to apply the change myself, but it does not seem to work as it should be.

    For this reason, I will raise this to our developers so that they can take a look at what might be going on and help you resolve the issue.

    As soon as there are any updates on this we will let you know through this thread.
