Can I get form-error messages in Spanish?


#1

Now I have my form with mandatory fields… but when a user skips one, it gets a notification saying “You must complete this field”.

Can I get that notification in another custom language? My target users are all Spanish.

Thanks,
jc

Hi JC - There’s no built in functionality for this at the moment but you can customize the error messages with a little custom code. Checkout the article below if your interested!

@Johnny – I’m also trying to translate the validation error messages to Spanish, but I’m having a hard time doing it. I have placed the javascript code as indicated and the errer messages are still coming up in English…

My form is very simple. It just asks for: Nombre, Email, Telefono

The field ids are: nombre, email, telefono (respectively). I’m selecting “Head” for placement…

Please help.

This script has worked before on a previous form, but I have now created a new form and the translation of the notification message does not seem to work. This is the Javascript I put in the form: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0f141negf4
But the error message are still in English: http://awesomescreenshot.com/02241ndp33

Hi Ido - it looks like the field names that you have in your script don’t match what’s entered into the form–they’ll need to match exactly (including capitalization to work).

If you open up the form editor, you’ll see exactly what’s the form name is in grey, under the label. It looks like you’ve got some extra spaces in some of the form labels and in your Javascript, there are some caps in the field names. The messages themselves can have caps, but the field names will always be lower case.

Thanks! I got it working now.

Worked for me as well, many thanks! I used it for the spanish error translation, and since all of my visitors speak spanish, I just included it on the global script configuration for my domain. Great help, thanks again! :slight_smile:
