    How do I translate some widgets in my form in Multi Language settings?

    Asked by RobertKRice on August 26, 2016 at 06:48 AM

    I have now prepared a French language of my form and am really pleased but I cannot see how to translate the following elements:

    * Form Tabs Widget

    * Multiple Selection Widget

    * Image Upload Preview Widget (Button/Upload text)

    * Google reCaptcha Widget

    * Checkable Ts and Cs Widget (form text)

    * Checkable Ts and Widget (make link vary according to language)

    Also I have 2 embedded pdfs where I think I should be able to edit the html to change it by language. Is that right ?

    Finally, you might want to have a dynamic language for your "Powered by Jotform" note !

    Unfortunately, you can only translate the widget labels, but not its options or internal texts, texts that cannot be fetched by the translator. I think the option the translate widgets is already raised before, but we don't have an update about it yet.

    The PDF is an external file and cannot be translated by the multi language tool. You can only translate the hyperlink text. 

    As for the Jotform Branding, I have moved that into a new thread. Here's the link: https://www.jotform.com/answers/916992

    Dear Welvin
    Thank you for your (as ever) quick reply.
    I hope you will fix this soon - I can't blame you if you fix your branding first - but next after that!! I hope you'll let me know. Meanwhile I'll see if I can think of some workarounds.

    Is the current language available as the value of some {field} ? If so in some cases might it not be possible to embed an if statement in the widget ? Not sure of the syntax though..

    any thoughts welcome, and thanks again
