    You may need to setup your own dropdown options that are already translated.  As far as I can tell, even using the form language settings will not automatically translate the months.  Set the special options for the dropdown back to "none" then copy the tranlated months into the options:

    I do not believe they can be translated automatically.

    This worked only for the credit card expiry months I can't figure out how to get to this options screen under each of the birthday ones??  Can you please explain how I get there for the birthdays?

    If you change the language settings of JotForm (i.e Italiano), then use the date picker, it will carry the correct language.
