    Multiple Language: the option to translate placeholders for fields

    Asked by ImmediaSignup on June 20, 2016 at 12:09 PM



    I cannot find a way of changing the "confirm e-mail" button when the language changes. The same problem occurs with the country dropdown, which remains saying "Please select".


    If you go to the form and change the language to German you can see these two things.

    How can I change these?

    Yes, there's currently no way to translate the language for the placeholders. I have submitted this as a feature request to our developers. We can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it via this thread.

    For the meantime, you may consider removing the placeholder in the field. For the Address field, you can set the default country.

    This has now been implemented in the translation wizard.  It is possible to translate the "please select" along with all of the countries in the address wizard.  It is also possible to translate the hint text in the email address confirmation.  Please let us know if you have any other requests.
