Multi-lingual functionality

Is there a way to have system messages appear in English on one form and French on another form-driven from the same sheet. The only way to change the prompts so far is to change my personal settings which impacts all sheets.

    Hi @Douglas Duncan

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, it's not possible now, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment

    As a possible workaround, you could create another user account with the other language and then set up a workflow, so the submissions are moved/copied to your main sheet.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Dr.Google brought me here ;)

    Working in a Dutch firm owned by an English Group, I would really applaud for this to be introduced.

    For example, just made my first dashboard. Copied it and translated.

    Not happy with draft, start editting the Dutch guessed it, Copy and translate, again :S

    You have a lot of great answers here in the community @Andrée Starå . Wish I knew 10% of what you did. I do see the use and power of Smartsheet, but thinking of a design-view if you would, is quite hard. You have to be at quite a skills level to get a proper working systems that is at a proper working level when introducing in a organization, otherwise it will bleed out, like it happens a lot when there is change in an organization.
