I need some help to change the text in the form "Sign up for news and updates" to a custom text. 

This is hacky but should get the job done:

/* Modify email field checkbox caption "Sign up for news and updates" */
.form-wrapper .form-item.field.email .option span {
  font-size: 0 !important;
  visibility: hidden;
.form-wrapper .form-item.field.email .option span:after {
  content: "Inscrivez-vous pour recevoir nos actualités"; /* edit as requried */
  font-size: 15px !important;
  visibility: visible;
  margin-left: -17px;

A better way to do this is to modify the caption with some JavaScript but due to recent form modifications, this is reasonably complex and not ideal for a forum post.

Hi Paul, 

Hope you are well! 

My client contacted me again and asked if we could also translate the word "required" in the form to his preferred language. 

Wanted to check if I should use the code above but change the email to title and change the "sign up" part to "required"? Appreciate any tips you could provide , thank you so much!
