Toolset Forms include different texts and field labels. WPML automatically registers these strings and you can translate them using String Translation.

Making your forms translatable

First, you must make sure your forms are translatable.

When creating a form, make sure the Include WPML localization option is turned on.

If you created some Toolset forms before activating and setting up WPML, you have to resave them. Edit the form, make sure the Include WPML localization option is turned on and save. This will make the existing form’s strings appear for translation.

Translating your Toolset forms

Translating Toolset forms is easy and requires only two steps:

  1. Use String Translation to translate the texts found in your form.
  2. Translate the page on which the form appears.

To translate your form’s texts, go to the WPML -> String Translation page. There, use the filter at the top to find the texts coming from your form. All texts related to Toolset Forms can be found under domains whose name starts with cred-form.

You can translate found texts directly on the String Translation page or send them for translation to your local translators or to a translation service.

Translating form texts directly on the String Translation page


Click the translation link for the string you want to edit. Translate the string, select that the translation is complete and save.

Sending form texts for translation to other translators


Select the strings you want to send for translation. Below the list, select the languages you want to translate the texts into and click to add them to the translation basket. Go to the Translation Basket and send the strings for translation.

Once your Toolset forms texts are translated, simply translate the page where the form appears on.
