HOW IT LOOKS FOR THE PARTICIPANT
Whichever link the participant receives, they will be lead to a form in that language.
If you share the live address from form builder, they will receive the form in the default language. When the language is published, the language toggle will still be available on the live form. Participants will also be able to select between default language and translated language(s) from the dropdown:
The participant will also receive the email and booking confirmation pdf in the translated language too.
If you are importing and inviting participants, you can predefine the form language for each participant.
GOOD TO KNOW
If you copy a project with forms translations, the forms translations will be copied into the new project.
The default language in project settings cannot be changed once you add translations.
Translate one language at a time for ease and efficiency.
Consider creating text templates for different languages for texts you reuse.
Create a form front page where you can add the custom URLs to the relevant language.
Choose the default language of the form to be the one most/all participants understand. For e.g., if most of your participants are English speakers and only some speak Dutch, set the default language to English.
