Multilingual Surveys – Creating Surveys in Any Language

SurveyMethods’ survey software supports creating surveys in any language using the Language Pack feature. This feature allows you to create multilingual surveys, and customize the language in your survey to a language of your choice.

  • For new surveys, in the “Create Survey” screen, select an existing language pack from the “Language” dropdown, or click on “Create New Language Pack” to create your own language pack.
  • For existing surveys, go to “Edit Title, Language, Survey Anonymity” in the survey “Settings” section. Select an existing language pack from the “Language” dropdown, or click on “Create New Language Pack” to create your own language pack.

How the Language Pack Feature Works

The survey language pack feature enables you to display all default survey messages (button texts, error messages, instruction texts, if other, please specify labels, etc.) as specified in the selected language pack. The language pack will not affect the language of your survey question and answer options; these will remain in the language they were typed in.

Customize Text and Messages Using Language Pack

A survey can have only one language pack applied to it at a time. If you need to have the same survey in more than one language, you will need to create copies of the survey and apply a different language pack to each copy of the survey.

For additional information, please refer the detailed documentation on survey language packs.
