    Can i manually translate a form language to another?

    Asked by tabukpaws on August 07, 2015 at 09:40 AM
    Hi, I would like my form in both English and Arabic, also it is very common for automatic translations to be wrong so my Arabic friends have translated mine, does the phishing detector mean I cannot use a manual translation?

    You can actually use the translation tool to type the translation for the particular fields in your form by using the edit translation option, click on the language you are translating to and then you can define the Arabic equivalent of the English text

    The phishing detector might be triggered by the none standard accents in the Arabic text so it is recommended to use the form translation tool

    Hi
    Thanks
    when you say 'define' do you mean I have to type it in? (The tool does not
    translate).
    Can I have the one for in both languages? I need it that way so I can
    understand the answers,
    Thanks

    The tool does not translate the form for you, you would indeed need to type in your own translation.  Your users will be presented with a choice of languages when they load the form:
