Not sure if users can understand the form? Users from the most varied backgrounds can now utilize the same tabs by applying translation. Instantly turn your forms into a multilingual business processes. That’s right. Make your forms available in a language chosen by your form’s visitors.

$Resources:{resx file name},{resx key name} for example:
