Translating just enough for the frontend user

  1. AndyNick

    I was wondering if you could point me toward those strings in the .po file that are exclusively for the backend and won't matter to anyone interacting with a translation of a form on the frontend. Some strings are very obviously for the admin, but there seems to be some overlap. I'd like to keep as much functionality as possible in the backend in English.

  2. If you're looking for only the front-end to be in a different language - you could just place the appropriate text for field labels and descriptions in the form builder while creating the form.

    You could also then use our sublabel filters as needed to change the sublabel text on complex fields:

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, no problems on the field labels needing to be in the target language.

    And thanks for the directions on how to handle sublabel text. I'll be going through the documentation in detail. Saved me a lot of time dealing with the language file; I thought that was the only route to having those sublabels and confirmation / error messages on the frontend display in the users' language.

    Thanks for the previous advice. I've been able to follow the directions in the documentation to change most of the validation messages I need to. One that is dogging me is "Your emails do not match" when the "Enable Email Confirmation" is checked in the email field. Could you point me in the right direction how to get this one into the target language?

    Wondering if there is a solution for this translation.
