    You cannot directly change or translate the "Distance" and "Duration" text in the widget setting, but it should be possible to change what is being displayed in the live form using CSS. You can try this custom CSS code:

    /* Remove default text distance*/

    #ddResult > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(3) > th {

    display:none !important;


    /* Insert translation for distance*/

    #ddResult > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(3)::before {

    display: block !important;

    content: "Vzdálenost" !important;


    /* Remove default text for duration */

    #ddResult > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(4) > th {

    display: none !important;


    /* Insert translation for duration */

    #ddResult > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(4)::before {

    display: block !important;

    content: "Trvání" !important;



    You can paste it under the widget's "Custom CSS" tab:


    You can check my cloned form here: https://form.jotform.com/60776038506964

    This is how it looks like:


    I have also forwarded a feature request to our widget team to see if they can add further options that allows you to change the text label for the "Distance" and "Duration" just like the "From" and "To" labels. But I'm unable to guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon. Rest assure that we will update you on this thread once we hear any news.


    For the other concern you have regarding the user of the driving distance widget on form calculation widget, I have opened a separate thread for it. Please refer to this link instead: https://www.jotform.com/answers/797850. We will address it shortly. Thank you.
