  1. Hi guys

    I've recently used gforms on a german site and I realized that the subtext on the preset inputs (like the name field has "firstname" and "lastname" etc) can't be changed and thus renders that field somewhat unusable on a site that isn't in English...

    Currently I've had to use jQuery
    $('#input_id label').html('Voorname');
    ...which does the trick, but is a bit tiresome with bigger forms :P

    Could you include in future versions, the ability to

    a) have a page where you can choose the language of the site and then if language-X is chosen, then those kinds of preset text are in that language

    or

    b) make those fields editable for us to change as/when we need to...

    Thanks much!

  2. Mark,
    The sub-labels are designed to be changed by translating the plugin. You can use PoEdit to create the german translation file with the sub-labels translated. The following article has some good information on how to do that.
    http://weblogtoolscollection.com/archives/2007/08/27/localizing-a-wordpress-plugin-using-poedit/

    In addition to that, you can use hooks to change the sub-labels. The following code will change the first name sublabel


    add_filter("gform_name_first", change_first_name);
    function change_first_name($sublabel){
    return "Voorname";
    }

    Following is the list of all available sub-label filters:

    gform_address_street
    gform_address_street2
    gform_address_city
    gform_address_state
    gform_address_country

    gform_name_prefix
    gform_name_first
    gform_name_last
    gform_name_suffix

  4. Hello, can you please let me know what the status is of a multilingual version of Gravity Forms? I'm not familiar with any programming. I use Wordpress 2.8.6 and the lates version of the qTranslate plugin. I've got help from a php/html/css expert, he told me that the sublabels can be translated (added code in functions.php of Arras-theme) but the filednames cannot be translated. My site is in 6 languages (en, nl, de, fr, es, ru). Do I have to make 6 forms?

    Thanks in advance for your help. Your plugin is wonderfull, but I really need it to be multilangual. Please have a look at: http://www.internationalvocalcompetition.com/IVC/2009/11/23/application-form/

  8. Hallo, I am just getting started today. But I need this form in many languages. Do I just have to translate the gravityforms.pot and place the in my chase de_DE.mo file into the languages folder then it will be active if WP is running in German?

  9. Yes, thats correct. Gravity Forms can be localized just like any other WordPress plugin using mo/po files.

  10. That’s nice, it’s a big one to translate but maybe we can exchange here and soon get some more languages together. One big wish about multilingual sites, I wish the possibility to choose out a .mo file for each form to make gravity forms multilingual. Would be sooooo nice:-)
