Translate Forms

Feathery forms can be easily translated into different languages and conditionally served to your different audiences based on their region.

You create your Feathery form in a particular language, but you may need to serve the same form to international audiences of different languages. Rather than rely on Google Translate's default translation, it's easy to create and maintain your own custom translations that are automatically applied based on the user's preferred language.

Adding a custom translation

  1. Go to the Custom Translations section of your form Settings tab.

  2. Download the Default Translation file, which will contain phrases from your existing form that should be translated to the new language you wish to add. If you don't wish to completely translate your form, you don't have to add a translation for every single phrase.

  3. Once you've completed the translation file, click Add New Translation.

  4. Choose the language that you've created a custom translation for.

  5. Upload your file

  6. Click Add

  7. You're done! To view the new translation you've created for the form, you can click the preview icon on the language you've added.

Viewing the custom translation

By default, your form will show up for users in their browser's preferred language. You can override this in a few ways.

  • From your browser settings, you can adjust your personal user interface language. Your form will detect this adjustment and switch translations if one exists.

  • To directly view the custom translation you've created, go to the Custom Translations section of your form settings. Find the language you want to view, and click the preview icon. This will open up the translated form in a new tab.

  • If you have the URL of your Feathery form, you can add the _locale query parameter mapped to the ISO 639-1 code corresponding to the translation you want to view it in. So if your URL is, to view the Spanish version you would change it to

  • If you embedded your Feathery form with our React or JS SDK, you can pass your desired language code in as an initialization option using the language parameter.
