How to Make Your Forms Multilingual

November 26, 2021

The translation tool helps you reach a global audience much better, as your forms can cater to a multilingual audience. It will help your visitors control the language that your form reads in, bringing you higher conversion and satisfaction rates.

1. To get started, click Settings at the top, Form Settings on the left, then click Show More Options.

2. Next, you need to set up the default Form Language. Note that you won’t get into the translation options unless you pick a default language first. The usual workflow is to build your form first, as is, using the default language, then add the other language translations afterward.

6. The translation window for the selected language should open up. You can now start adding your translations. All changes you perform are automatically saved.

Go to the Form Warnings tab to localize the form warnings if needed. And to avoid confusion, you can also hide filled entries so you can focus your work on untranslated fields only.
