You'll need:

Then if the problem persists after the update, I'd like to replicate the problem you have so could you please describe the steps I need to take in order to do so? If you think it may help, please take sceenshots of what you see (i.e. the problem at hand) so I can be in a better position to help.

Thank you.

Hello Sarah,
have uploaded all plugins to latest version, but problem persists..
I will now explain where I have problem and give you screenshots..
After sending form in addon language (English), got message in String translation - Translation needs update..
Have WP 3.5, 3 languages (main Croatian, addon English and German).

1.hidden link
form in english translation, modal window (same problem if form is on page)
2. hidden link
confirmation message translated in english
3. hidden link
same form after refreshing page (F5) in Firefox (tryed in other browser - Chrome, IE, Safari, Opera - same result)
4. hidden link
hidden link
String Traslation - Translation needs update

Amazing is that not all fields in form need update - 17_field-10-label (Email), and 17_title (Servis/Izleti) got Translation complete... Have tryed to make new form, translate again same results.. Tryed to duplicate form, translate same results.. In WPML, Support, clicked on troubleshooting page, and then Set Language information same results.. Then Remove ghost entries from translation table - same result... Conclusion - after sending form my translations are not enabled any more... Waiting for answer..

Hello Sarah, Happy New Year to you and all stuff from wmpl 😉

Have made clean WP install - 3.5, added wpml and gravity form plugin (like above in question), add one form and translated the form...

you can see it on: hidden link...
So please can you use english language - hidden link and enter fields in form, after submit you will get message, and then refresh page and you will see that translation is gone (String Translation – Translation needs update)... i can give to you ftp/user login if you want..

OMG, just LOL! 😉

I have found solution: if you are WPML translator (like me admin), and if you test form, after submiting you will get translations need update.. After logout, and then trying the form, all is WORKING!!! I can't belive 😉
So in future, will not test form when I logged in like admin..

Hello Ooluja,

I tested the form you created. After refreshing the page I still see the form in English.

Is the issue resolved?

Yes issue is resolved, no more testing forms logged in as admin 😉 Tnx
