I want to translate '!title field is required.'. I can see it in 'admin/config/regional/translate/translate' but if I put a translation, it will override the name/label of each field.

So it is taking '!title field is required.' as one string. But I just want to translate 'field is required' and field names separately.

For example a Name and Email required in a form should display same translation but replacing !title with the name of the field.

How to do that.

To change the field name, you have to translate !name field is required. . To do this, follow these following steps :

  1. Go to admin/config/regional/translate/translate.
  2. Search for the string !name field is required in the String contains textfield.
  3. In search result, change the string for all the languages.
  4. And then save it.

I hope it works.
