Note that changing your typeform language doesn't automatically translate the form's content, like question text or answer choices - you'll have to do that yourself! In the image above, the typeform creator wrote the Welcome Screen text and description in English, and they are still in English even after switching the typeform language.

You can customize system messages if you'd like to change any of the default non-English messages. 

Languages not supported

Typeforms don't currently support right-to-left languages like Arabic or Hebrew.
