In the Adobe Reader and Acrobat 11.0.03 patch, we introduced the signature field detection capability which identifies documents that the user may need to sign. Unfortunately, the signature field detection algorithm is finding some false positives and displaying the signature field detected message when it should not. We have been following the discussions on our user forums, and understand the inconvenience it has caused for some users who encountered falsely identified documents. We do apologize.
Users can quickly hide the message bar that appears for a document by clicking the icon on the left of the message bar. IT professionals and others familiar with working with registry settings can follow the instructions provided in the version 11.0.3 release notes to disable this message.
We are diligently working on improvements for the signature field detection accuracy. We are also planning to add the ability for users to turn off the signature detection message more easily. We hope to bring the improvements to you soon. Stay tuned.
9/10/13 UPDATE: The auto-detect signature field feature is disabled by default. Please see 11.0.04 Update Release for more info: http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotes/11/11.0.04.html#elevenzerozerofour

Bonjour, nos amis! Also, buongiorno, guten Tag, buenos días, god dagga, and hyvää päivää. Today is an exciting day for FormsCentral–we’re going global. If you are a native speaker of (or just prefer to speak) French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian or Japanese (whew!), you can now view the FormsCentral service in whichever of those languages you choose. Not only will all of your menus and interface elements be displayed in the language of your choice, but any email notifications sent by FormsCentral will also be presented in that language.
But what if you live in Norway and need to send a form to the denizens of Holland? No problem. Any form you build with your language-specific interface will allow for input in any of the twelve available languages. You can specify the language in which the distributed form will be presented, and you can build the form using your familiar Norwegian interface, but then distribute the form for speakers of Dutch. In this particular case, certain elements of the form (such as the submit button or any error messages that your form respondents might see) will be in Dutch, and not Norwegian—and you don’t need to do any translating (although you’re still on the hook for writing your own questions).
We’re so excited about localizing FormsCentral that we may just go throw ourselves a fiesta. Or maybe a feestje. Maybe we’ll send a form out to the FormsCentral team to see what kind of divertimento everyone wants to have. In the meantime, you can change your language settings by clicking on your account menu in FormsCentral and choosing “My Information”. Or “Dati personali”. Or “Eigene Informationen”. Or…well, you get the idea.
