we are using Freeform Pro and Transcribe to build forms and translate content.

Using the composer tag, is there a way for the CAPTCHA label 'Please enter the word you see in the image below' to be translated.

Is there a way to break the captcha out of the tag and translate?

We are using the tag below to bring in the code:


Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Well there are two simple ways to do that:


  • Go to system\expressionengine\third_party\freeform\language\english\freeform_lang.php
  • Search for the array captcha_input_instructions and change the text to yours.


Use JQuery to change the text from Label:


{if segment_1 == 'de'}
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('.captcha_label').text('DE text goes here!')

    Thanks - I went for the JS option in the end as I only had a few languages to handle so suited just fine. Merry Christmas. Commented Dec 22, 2016 at 14:58
