From the Start Page, choose System Management, Forms, then Configure Form Languages.The Default language is the language displayed if the user has not chosen a language preference. The User Count is the number of users who currently have chosen the language as their default.
- To add a language, click New or select one of the listed languages.
- Select one or more Available Languages.
- Click Submit.
- Click Submit.

- Click the Language link.
- Select a Language from the drop-down list.
- Enter the translated property name in the Translation field.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 to add more languages and translations.

Set User Preferences
On the Forms page for each portal, the user can click the Preference button to choose from a list of languages defined on the Configure Form Languages page.
After selection, the form listing is reloaded and any forms that have translations for the selected language are displayed in that language. When a translation is not available, the form is displayed in the default language.
When filling out a form, the form's title bar displays the language into which the form is translated. All available translations for the form appear in the drop-down list, which allows the user to choose a language in which to display the form without having to change their user preference.
