    Multilingual Forms: Labels on sub products are not translating

    Asked by roel_heerema on June 02, 2016 at 09:28 AM

    As I stated in my previous question (I hit the return key by accident and the contactform was send (I think):

    In the Form Builder an item is in Dutch (see enclosed picture - encircled in red), while in any browser it is in English. How to change this?

    Also: as you can see (encircled in blue) the prices are with the € sign, as well as the word EUR (same in American-English: $ sig and USD). Is it possible to use ONLY the € sign?

    Thanks for your cooperation,
    kind regards,

    Roel Heerema

    You should be able to translate it to Dutch if you follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/298-How-to-translate-your-forms-to-different-languages. I strongly suggest to have the form in English then translate it to Dutch manually using that guide.

     

    Unfortunately, it's not translating. Let me forward this to our developers to have it checked and fixed. We will update you on this thread as soon as this has been resolved.

    For the meantime, try using this custom CSS code to translate the word "Price" to "Prijs":

    .form-product-child-table > tbody > tr:nth-child(1) > th:nth-child(2) > span {

        display: none !important;

    }

    .form-product-child-table > tbody > tr:nth-child(1) > th:nth-child(2):after {

        content: "Prijs" !important;

        font-size: 11px !important;

    }

    Paste it under your CSS tab in the Form Designer Tool.

    I first did as you asked (add the language Nederlands to my form), but when I wanted to edit this language, I got the notice "Original language can not be edited", so it did not work.

    Your CSS code did work however and now the word 'Price' is correctly translated to 'Prijs'.

    Can I also do this with CSS on the word 'Total' at the end of the part of my form that deals with the actual ordering and amount to pay (Purchase Order Tool)? In Dutch (Nederlands) this would be 'Totaal' or 'Totaal te betalen'.

    I also want to use a day and time widget for the ordering, like the 'DateTime Single' widget, but the calendar you will see is in English, like 'So', 'Mo', 'Tu', 'We', 'Th', 'Fr' and 'Sa', instead of: 'Ma', 'Di', 'Wo', 'Do', 'Vr' and 'Za' as is the Dutch abbreviation of the weekdays. Also the months are in English instead of Dutch.

    Thanks for your concern and cooperation!

    Please add this css code to your form, to change the Total:

    #total-text

    {  visibility:hidden !important;}

     

    #total-text:after

    {  content: "Totaal" !important;

    visibility:visible;}

    I have moved the calendar question to a new thread. You can find it here:
