urgent help needed: chrome browser translates smartsheet german form because of <html lang="en">

Answered - Pending Review

The smartsheet form is in german language but the htm code (ctrl-u) shows <html lang="en">.

This triggers an automatic translation in the chrome browser to german language and some colleagues have this enabled. The result is disastrous, there are german swearwords shown etc.
