    How to change Calendar text to be in German?

    Asked by Helmut512 on July 31, 2015 at 10:20 AM

    We are creating forms under a German OS X on Mac.

    The forms language is in English. But despite all attempts the calendar information (Month - Day - Year) appears in German. It refuses to be displayed in English.

    I am looking at your jotform Helmut, but from what I can see the jotform is made in English language.

    To change the date text that is shown you must first set the language to German language (or any other that you need for specific form).

    To change the language, you should take a look at the following guide: How to make your forms multilingual?

    Once you do and add additional language (German) you will see the option to change between them and that the date will follow the change as well.

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