SS v2.3.3, am testing and building a site with multi-lingual contents. Got translation mode to work, but now I can not seem to translate or add new user forms for my other language. E.G. Default Lang is EN, the second lang is Zh, I made a contact form in EN, but the form does not work in translation mode for Zh.

I tried to create a new form for the second language (Zh), but it did not show up, instead the new fields created got mixed-in with the forms in the default EN...

Can anyone know how to work around this? or could suggest a way for the user forms to work in multi-lingual situations...

Maybe Will will correct me, but I think you should wait for the new version of the module. If you cannot wait, try to implement the hacks described in this thread if you feel comfortable modifying directly your data base:

And may I suggest you to search more thoroughly the forum archives: this problem has been discussed, as you see, many times.

Best regards,
