    I believe that there is no way at the moment to translate the date field inside the Configurable List widget. We can only have the months presented in English at the moment.

    I am raising this to our developers as a feature request for possible inclusion in the future, as I do believe that the ability to translate the date field would be beneficial. I can see that your form's language is already set to Francais, and I am raising this request to our developers that the date field of this widget is made translatable with the language translation tool.

    We will let you know through this thread if or when such a thing gets implemented, but we can't give any estimates on when that might be.

    In the meantime, you may want to use 3 separate drop down fields that you can fill with your own translated words. Something like this for the month drop down:

    Month: dropdown : January, February, March, April, ... : Select month

    I hope this helps.
