    Auto translate non-english form data in email back to english

    Asked by hrcfertility on May 12, 2016 at 02:29 PM

    Hi...We are in the same situation in where we have a form that is in Chinese but the person who receives the submitted forms only speaks English.  I see above that you were possibly going to create a translation component that would translate the message submitted in Chinese into English so it could be read.  Please let me know if there has been any progress on this feature and if so, how do I do it?

    Thank you!

    The feature request ticket is still open in our system, but unfortunately, we cannot provide any ETA for when it will be implemented.

    What you can try is to add a submission translation link based on a Google Translate service to the email template.

    Translation link:

    https://translate.google.com/translate?u=https://www.jotform.com/submission/{id}

    It should let the person who receives the email, click on the link to open submission data in a Google Translate window.
