    I'm afraid that it is not possible to have custom countries listed with a regular Address field at the moment, nor to have the countries appear translated. If you make your forms multilingual, it will translate only the labels for the individual fields - country names remain in English.

    You can check what I mean on the following demo form, be changing between English and Francais:

    In order to have a custom and translated list of countries, you would have to use a Drop Down field instead - and list only the countries that you want. You can list your options with any names, so you can list translated versions of country names in your local language.

    However, please do note that using a regular Drop Down field for the Country instead of an actual Address field may not automatically work with some of our third-party integrations, such as MailChimp integration. Otherwise, this solution should help.
