Caldera Forms Translation


Translate Caldera Forms fields.

What it does:

  • Translate form field labels, descriptions, default values and option values for select, checkbox, toggle switch, radio and auto-complete fields.
  • Adds a language picker field.
  • Translate the message displayed after a successful form submission.

One form, all the languages you need.

  • Documentation
  • Requires Caldera Forms 1.4.4 or later.
  • Now supports language switching via WPML

Not production ready – sloppy

Imagine you translate a long form into different languages. Then imagine you change a custom class or add/remove an option from the form. Now imagine all your translations gone.
Every form save (even if nothing changes) will overwrite the translation because this plugin saves the translation information directly into the form object. Once you save it from inside the form, the translations disappear. This plugin does not hold up to the otherwise good standards of the caldera forms.

Good Add-On Idea but useless

The original plugin Caldera Forms works beautifully although with some limitations on the free version.

This add-on for translations is a good idea in theory but lacks too many functionalities to be considered useful. If you read the support threads you will understand that it can’t be a proper solution for a website with multilingual needs.

I’ve installed and only in 5m of use i could find:

– bug in saving translations: it accepts your manual introduction and it displays those same translations in the front end, but if you need to edit, the backend didn’t store any of your work and it resets the translations you had previously inserted

– no option to translate html strings. If you create a form using a template, like contact, you have an header and a middle string that are html fields who’s value needs to be updated – this add-on doesn’t provide such option, and in the tutorial of the site they don’t even show the final result of the explanation because they know it will raise questions about the html fields lack of support.

Hope these issues get fixed because it would be a sweet add-on to have.

thank you,
