    I'm checking your form titled "Message TEST aux chauffeurs pour transports uniques ou multiples", and it seems like it is already translated to French?


    I presume what you want to translate is the actual input saved in the submission? Example, in this submission, it says "Friday", which should be "Vendredi" I presume?


    Is that what you would like to translate? Or you want to display the actual display in the calendar pop-up? The calendar pop-up can display the whole word for the day so it shows only the first letter of it. We'll wait for your response.

    Sorry I have found the screen where a complete date du jour appears ., but the question is the same : how to display a compte date in a courriel (translated in french).

    We do not display textual representation for month and day values in emails. The default formats you can choose from are:


    Example of displayed date in email:

    mmddyyy - 05-14-2016
    ddmmyyy - 14-05-2016
    yyymmdd - 2016-05-14

    The date format can be adjusted in emails based on PHP date formatting, but unfortunately, this option will only display the results in English.
