Hello, I've created a form in french, but whenever there is an error message, it still shows in English. How do I change this?

You may change any warning message by
1) click on the PREFERENCE button on the top toolbar
2) Go to the ADVNACED SETTING and click the button EDIT FORM WARNINGS
3) Scroll down until you find the warning you wish to modify and click on it
Once you have modify everything, Please do not forgot to click SAVE.
Hope this helps.

In our case most forms will be in French, some may be bilingual (French/English). Is there a way to have the error / warning messages automagically be in the same language without having to change for every single form which is not in English ?

In that case you may like to take a look at the following guide on how to make multilingual forms: http://www.jotform.com/help/298-How-to-make-your-forms-multilingual
When you make multilingual form, it will also allow you to translate the error message as well.

Sweet ! There is so much good in JotForm it is mind boggling ...
It would be nice if you could have the warning messages with default
translations as well. Or at least to allow users to create libraries which
could be shared across the forms or even with other users. Otherwise, it
looks, thus far, like one would need to do the translations over and over
for each form ?
Of course, as I think a little more about this, one could make an empty
multi-lingual template with the language selections and translations of
common elements. It can then be their "default" blank form to avoid having
to redo the translations ...
Then again, an update / correction to one translation would not
automagically appear in already active/made forms, just the template and
future forms ...
There is always a catch, isn't there ? ;)
Again, thanks for a great product and service. I really need to dig into
the widgets, documents / FAQs, etc. to see just how far JotForm allows us
