How to create different SharePoint forms for alternative languages

Modern SharePoint sites support large amount of languages. In your company, you might have users with different language preferences working on the same site.


Make sure the desired language is available on your site, before designing a form for it.

Available languages

Plumsail Forms can support multiple languages for each form with a little bit of work.


Previously, the implementation of different language forms worked differently. To get the latest functionality, please, update the app package to v1.0.8 or higher, and re-save forms in the editor v1.6.4 or higher.


First, you’ll need to create a Form Set for the language that you want to support:

Add form set

Then, you need to configure Custom Routing to redirect to this Form Set when the UI of the site is rendered with this language:

Custom routing

Use code like this:

if(_spPageContextInfo.currentUICultureName == 'es-ES'){
   return 'b442f350-2949-4d95-b13c-ac4063ab34e4';

You only need to replace ‘es-ES’ with the code of the language that you want to be supported and the ID of the Form Set can be copied at the bottom of the editor:

Form Set ID
