Hi all,

is there any way to translate the fields from a contact form using i18n?

When you create a contact form, you can add the fields and then click on translate. However, when you start translating the fields, they are changed in all languages which should not be the case.

Any ideas?

I was unable to get it fixed. I ended up creating custom page types for each of my contact forms.

Has anyone been able to solve this?

YellowDuck - how did you create custom form-pages for the different languages? I have been able to make different pagetypes, but not forms.
