How comes it is not possible anymore to create contact forms in language of choice with plugin CF7 combined with WPML?
If I'm not wrong, it was possible before, not? Check printscreen to see what I mean...

If I search on the internet, I find url https://wpml.org/documentation/plugins-compatibility/using-contact-form-7-with-wpml/. But here you have to translate messages yourself! :-///

Hello @stevenv-3,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

I am not sure why that feature has not been there actually, did you see that feature when WPML has been disabled?

The steps to translate contact form 7 with WPML is already in the documentation that you linked here. and yes, you will need to translate the message/strings yourself.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks

Hi,

That feature to choose language of contact form was there before when using CF7 and WPML together. But it seems it is gone now, don't understand why. I'm quite sure it was there before, as I have another website (www.dekalvaar.be) where I use WPML and CF7 together and this website is in 4 languages (with one language German I don't speak at all, so no way I translated the messages myself).

Very strange it is...

Hello @stevenv-3,

Yes, I can also confirm that it was before as I have seen that feature on contact form 7 before.

After searching a little bit I found that it was removed from version 4.4 of Contact form 7 https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/contact-form-7/tags/4.4/readme.txt

* The language selector has been removed from Add New Contact Form screen.

If you are unaware of the German translations of those messages, you can go here and see the translations from the .po files and copy paste those strings. hidden link

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks

Hi Shekhar,

Thanks for this usefull info! I have been searching on https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/contact-form-7 and seems I'm not the only one that is missing this feature! Hopefully it will come back very soon with update of CF7.
Thanks again for looking into this issue! 😉
