How to use translations

You can create, edit, and manage all of your translations in your Account Settings. You can then apply these translations to forms via the Theme Settings.

  1. From the dashboard, click your Avatar (icon in the top right) → Account Settings → Translations.
  2. Here you can see all of your translations and set the default across your forms.
  3. To add a translation, select "Add Translation." "Translation Title," "Translation Language," and "Translation Language is RTL" are required.
  4. (Optional) If you select "YES" for RTL, then all messaging, questions, and answers for forms will be set to RTL.
  5. (Optional) Please choose the appropriate character subsets from the font subsets dropdown if your language requires any.
  6. The left column contains a list of default translations for messaging on Paperform. You can provide an equivalent for each item in the right column.
  7. When finished, select "Create Translation." The translation will appear in your list of Account Translations.
  8. When editing a form, you can choose a translation or edit it by going to Theme → Translations.
Add custom translations in the column next to the default Paperform messaging.


  • You can edit or delete your translation at any time.
  • You can also opt to have any translation as the default for all of your forms.
  • The submit button wording is unique to every form, and can be set in the form editor under Theme → UI Elements → Submit Button.
  • If you would like your whole form to be in a different language, you will need to type out all the content including questions and text in your form the desired language.
