    If i correct understood you question, sitefinity supports it out of the box.

    You can create form, translate it to another language and rename labels. 

    I attached example with  EN ans ES form translation

  • Thank you for your answer. Yes it is a solution but is there another way to do that with resource file ? Without creating mulitple forms in each langages ?
  • Hi, 
    Out of the box this is not possible.

    You could however create a custom form field where you have total control over and implement something like for example:;

        public class CustomField : FieldControl, IFormFieldControl
            #region Constructor
            /// <summary>
            /// Initializes a new instance of the CustomField class.
            /// </summary>
            public CustomField()
                var resources = ResourceManager.GetManager();
                this.Title = resources.GetResourceOrEmpty(Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture, "FormResources", "myCustomFormField").Value;
