I am creating a sign up form and want to change the Email field display name to Spanish (Correo electrónico) - when I try to overwrite the display name it reverts back to "Email" every time. I see there is an option to change language, but English is the only option in the drop down. Help? thanks.

Hey Nancy! Great question and there actually wouldn't be a way to edit that display name in Emma as the email field is a default field. An option could be setting up a custom signup form via our API. Emma's API allows you to connect any form hosted on your site directly to your Emma audience groups. You decide which information (name, email and any other fields you store in your Emma account) gets added, and you specify the group(s) to which new people will be added. Each time someone hits 'submit' on your form, the appropriate information gets passed automatically and immediately to Emma. If you decide to do it, you'll go to your account settings and click the API key tab to generate the API key. You can check out the calls and help documentation here: You'll want to carefully look over the sample documentation to make sure it's within your skill-set because support is not provided for this feature, but one helpful jumping off-point: If you're specifically adding members from a form, you'll just use the import_single_member call.

Hopefully this helps, but please let me know if I can assist further.

I'm running into the same issue and see where this thread is 3 years old.  We could use a way to change the language - also on the Submit and Clear Buttons.  Thanks!
