    How to translate a form ?

    Asked by dbansleben on January 09, 2016 at 07:45 AM


    I am currently "developing" my form and use the purchase order widget.

    My site is located in Germany - therefore all text elements should be in german.

    If you take a look at https://eu.jotform.com//?formID=60071579000345# you can see that while click on the product "Geburt" beneath "Feen Welten auswählen" that "Price" is not translated --> should be "Preis".


    Furthermore I need the following strings translated:

    Subtotal --> "Zwischensumme"

    total --> "Gesamt"

    In additon the currency delimiter should be a "," instead of a dot. With regard to the currency - it will be shown doubled. € 12.80 EUR. Would be great if only the currency sign in front of the price OR the currency in standard written form will be displayed.


    Last not least I would like to raise a feature request.

    I need a conditional clause where I am able to hide/ unhide each single product dependent on a selection made before. Currently the fields are not displayed in the first step (IF) condition.


    Thanks a lot in advance and best regards from Germany
