Translating an eForm into Another Language(s)

Learn how to translate your form into different languages.

  • Before you translate a form, double-check to make sure it hasn't already been translated by another site. To do this, enter the eForms view in the Ocean portal, select "More", click "View Shared Forms", and search the list for the form.

eForms can be translated in the eForm Editor by following the steps below. If you add new items to your eForm after performing the initial translation, you will need to repeat the steps below to translate the newly added items.

  1. Add your desired language.

    • Open your form in the eForm editor.
    • From the Action menu at the top right, select "Internationalize".
  2. Add string translations.

    • Once the form is internationalized, go back into the Action menu and choose "String Translations...". The dialog provides one line per string for translation under the "Text" column, with the default translation as "FR: {original English string}". Simply replace these strings (including the "FR:" part) with the correct translations (see screenshot below) and save the form by clicking "OK".
  3. Test your translations.
