    In which language is the form visible by default?
    - the browser language....?

  • eueealumnado

    I wish I could choose another language that there is not actually available. In our country the two main languages are the Spanish and Basque. I would really like to customize our forms in those two languages. Will it be possible soon? Thanks and congratulations!

    yuh its not working for me even when i edit it, it doesnt translate

  • eiermann

    GREAT! I was waiting for this feature and it just comes right on time! But I think it would be better if the form picks the correct language depending on the user settings (system language, browser language). Conversions will increase even more.

    OK

  • medwards

    How does the email submission come in? If in the language submitted, can we translate back to english?

    Hello,
    I have been playing around with this a little and once I corrected all of the warnings, there was still some text on the form that was coming up still in English even though I had submitted a the translated version. Also, in the form I was working on, we have a an HTML text box with a lot of information but none of it had been translated and it was prompted to me in the warning area to correct translation for it.

    Thank you!

    I actually really need this ... and think it is a genius addition. I haven't used it yet ..but the principle is fantastic.
    Thanks Regards Mark

    This feature is definitely a plus, though I've not applied it to any of my forms as yet but I can't wait!
    Love what you guys are doing, great work!

    Thanks,

    А-У!

  • iplant

    I'm trying to get the form working in more than two languages (spanish and french in addition to english) but even if it seems to save the changes then it goes back to only english. I have done the translations twice, anche changed and saved each field, but still doesn't work. HELP! Anyhow great idea!

  • aquaclic

    Great feature - came in handy the exact moment I was going to copy a form and translate to 2 languages.

    How can I embed e.g. the french version of the form in one html text and the german one in another html text, without that the reader has to select?

    Thanks for your help

    P.S.: it didn't neither translate automatically with me - I don't mind except for the default error messages. Is it because I'm using an "old" form before this multilanguage feature was online?

  • leopoldolopes

    No Portuguese???! Bahhh...

  • ivanokk

    Can I display my form in only one language a time without display the language selector?
    I explain better: I have a form setting in Jotform with two language (English+Italian). I'd like to display the from only in English (without language selector) inside my English page and I'd like to display the form only in Italian inside my Italian page (without language selector). Is there a parameter to add to the line

  • linagarzon5017

    I'm not having a response with my form: http://www.thebilingualnews.com/contact-us.html

    The language button doesn't work.

  • Sophie Debacker

    I don't have a "save" button when i finish editing my labels... I can only go back or close the window ! I'm so sad because I would love to use this!

  • Oriol

    Me encanta que añadiais el idioma catalán! :D Gracias!

  • beamkt

    I'm used to edit my form in French and then use the multilingual option (I have to work in English, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish).

    But the "thank you" page remains in French even when I have submitted a translated version.
    Besides the "thank you" button in the menu is no longer available.

    Is it possible to translate the "thank you" page related to a translated form version.

    Thank you for a very quick answer. I have to be ready by Dec. 15

  • smartassistant

    Why is there no possibility anymore to translate the formular in different languages?
    This link at the top right is missing somehow at the moment :/
