Using Gravity Forms with WPML
In this short tutorial we’ll show you how you can translate forms created by Gravity Forms using WPML.
Why translate forms
You can use any contact form plugin and simply create different forms, per language. So, what’s the benefit in translating the same form to different languages?
The reason is convenience.
Setting up a form may be a complex process. Often, you may want to include logic for notifications, validation and other “behind the scenes” settings. Additionally, it’s often easier to insert a single “contact us” form into your content, without having to worry about what form in which language you are inserting.
WPML lets you create one set of forms with Gravity Forms, in your language. Then, you only need to translate the texts that appear in the forms and WPML will display the form in the right language. It’s the same form and any changes you do on it will apply instantly to all languages.

qTranslate is another plugin for multilingual WordPress. It works much differently from WPML. Instead of having different languages in different posts, qTranslates places all languages in the same post.
This importer tool splits the content of different languages to different posts, allowing your site to run with WPML.
The plugin is available from the WordPress plugins repository:
Single-Language Conversion (no WPML, strip all translations)
If you’re using the qTranslate Importer plugin without WPML, the output will be a site with just one language. The conversion process will ask you which language you want to maintain. All other languages will be deleted from the site.
This is useful if you’ve been experimenting with qTranslate and now you want to clean the database from all those language meta-tags.
At the end of the processing, all posts will have just the one language that you choose.
