"text is not localizable for default locale" error


I get the below error and I have no idea what it means or where it’s coming from! The form worked fine previously, and when I updated the form (not even changing this field at all in the new version) I started to get this error. Any ideas?

Error: ODK Validate Errors:

XForm is invalid. See above for the errors.
: Question ‘${Form_date}:label’: text is not localizable for default locale [default]!

This is the error I get when trying to deploy:

Expecting value: line 2 column 1 (char 1)

Did you have a chance to validate your xlsform with this online validator? It should be able to identify the syntax issues present within your xlsform.

Hi Kal_Lam,

The online validator is where I got the error from. Deploying it only gave me the Expecting value: line 2 column 1 (char 1) message.


Maybe you will need to share your xlsform with the community. The community should be able to help you out.
