Translations of custom forms

Hi devs,
I’m having a recurring issue of providing translations of data sets with custom forms. Our solution so far has been to use embedded javascript to translate variables, but this can become slightly complicated. I realised today that perhaps instead having multiple data entry forms per dataset, one per locale, might be a more user friendly approach?

Hi Olav,

that is a good point. We have an issue for that for 2.28:
