Changing the Language of a Form

Pack your bags and go international with your forms!

Formstack allows you to translate all standard field labels and buttons provided by Formstack into 36 different languages including:

Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Norwegian (BokmÃ¥l),Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish,  Vietnamese, and Welsh. 


To set the Form language, go to the Forms > Settings > General tab. You will see an option to change the language there.



Naming the Fields in the Target Language

Anything you change or create (custom questions, button name, etc.) needs to be added in the appropriate language, as we have no way of translating the custom text.

If you manually change the name of your submit button, you will need to put that in the appropriate language as well. To edit the button name, go to Forms > Build.  Click on the Submit Button in your Form and enter the new Submit text.  Click off of the field to save your changes.


Multi-Language Forms

Besides changing the default language of a form, you can also change the language of a single field while the rest of your form remains in the language you originally set. This could be helpful if you wanted to create a bilingual form. 


 To set the language of a specific field click on the field, then choose a different language from the "Field Language" menu on the left.
