    In this version 4.0.6 it seems that labels are not translated anymore when WP is installed in a non English laguage.
    Just to know if I translate all labels now or if I wait, will foreign languages be back soon?

    Sometimes a language file will be older than the current version of Fast Secure Contact Form for WordPress. In that case there may be some text that appears in English instead of the set language.

    Version 4.xx needs all the language files updated.

    This help page explains how to take an existing language file and update it.

    If you are able to update ta language file, please contact me so I can include it.

    Hi Mike,
    I've done everything you described to update the translation (in my case to German)...but it does not work, it's still in English. I even uninstalled the plugin and reinstalled it - no effect.
    What could I do now?
    Thanks for your help...

    Mike, you wrote:

    In fact it's not just "some text", it's any text. Nothing is translated, as if this version didn't take the language files into account.

    Hi Mike,
    Translation is broken for French language.
    Some fields are not corrects, for instance "First Name, Last Name or Re-enter Email" are still in english.
    Was the same in 3.x versions. I was obliged to translate every time I updated.
    I thought with this new version the problem would be fixed, but it isn't.
    I sent you few monthes ago a correct translation for French, but you didn't take care and didn't include it.
    So will we be always forced to re-code at every update ? Or will you fix this point ?
    Regards.

    $tab_names = array(
    __('Basic Settings', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Fields', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Styles', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Labels', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Security', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Advanced', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Scheduling', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Tools', 'si-contact-form'),
    __('Newsletter', 'si-contact-form'),
    );
    Every tab is translated, except Fields... Why ????

    Hi Mike,
    I've found the reason of translation problems: poedit declared as "fuzzy" some entries and so they didn't display. Changed for "validated" translation and everything is OK.
    I have made a very advanced translation for French language.
    I'm sorry to tell you that, but your actual one is so bad, with numerous errors. Done by Canadians I guess. lol
    Are you interested by my version, in which all essentials terms are translated (more than 75%).
    If you want it to integrate in next FSCF version, send me an email address where I can send you the files for checking.
    You will be able to look at the end of .po file: some translation are done for missing terms in the core markup of FSCF (Add New Field, Show Details, General Field Settings...). It could help you to improve it.
    I'm so tired to rewrite it at every update...
    Regards.

    Has anyone solved this issue yet? I have a 5-language site. FSCF 3.x.x automagically translated my forms ("name", "email", "message", "required field" etc), but since upgrading to 4.x.x they're all in English and no matter how many times I try this, it still doesn't work.

    Anyone?

    ninedoor:
    With version 3.1.6.1 and up, including 4.xx versions, HTML is no longer allowed in field labels, versions older than 3.1.6.1 could have HTML.
    This is why the multi-language translation method you used no longer works with qtranslate.

    Here is the solution:
    There is another plugin called gTranslate, I use it on my site site, it does automatic translations by google translate. There is no contact form settings adjustment needed.

    I have the same problem here. I have translations of all essential parts of FSCF, but still all the texts are displayed in english.

    I'm using newest FSCF ang qtranslate for language management. But still FSCF is not using language files
