    I presume you are referring to the SMS Confirmation widget? 

    Are these the following elements you want to translate:

    1. "Confirm" button

    2. Error and confirmation messages showing below the input field?

    Is that correct?


    I checked the widget, but unfortunately the error messages are directly generated in Twilio, so it is not possible to have a direct translation of it in the widget.

    We can have a custom CSS code to change the text in the confirm button visually. You can add this custom CSS code in your widget:

    #send_btn {

    visibility: hidden !important;


    #send_btn:after {

      content:'Text here'; 

      visibility: visible;

      display: block;

      position: relative;

      top: -25px;

      padding: 5px;

      -webkit-appearance: button;

      cursor: pointer;



    Just change the 'content' attribute to the language you want for the confirm button. Here's a screenshot to where you need to place that CSS code.


    I have forwarded this concern about the translations to our widget team to see if they can make some improvements on this. However, we cannot guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon. For now, I'll try to look for possible workarounds for the error messages, but it is highly unlikely that this can be done using only CSS. I would also recommend that you contact Twilio about this.
