Translating a survey

The default language of a new survey is always the same as the user interface language.

Survey with multiple languages

1. Before adding a new language version it is recommended to have the original survey as ready as possible
2. Click language button and select Edit languages…
3. In the Language versions window add new language with the ‘+’ button and select the desired language
4. Click ‘Add’
5. Click ‘Save’
6. The language you added is automatically set on and you can begin to translate the survey
7. Translate (overwrite) survey texts, questions etc. to the selected language (Notice how all the survey questions etc. are copied to the new language and have text [Not translated] after them.)

Survey with only one language that is different from the default language

A) With a new survey

1. Create a new survey
2. Click language button and select Edit languages…
3. In the Language versions window add new language with the ‘+’ button and select the desired language
4. Click ‘Add’
5. Select the language you don’t need in the Language versions window
6. Click button ‘-‘ to remove that language
7. Click ‘Save’
8. Build the survey with the the language you added in the step 3

B) Survey draft where question language is different than the language version

Common example of this case is where the user interface language is for example English and the survey questions have been written in Spanish. The default language version in this case is English and therefore the survey navigation buttons are in English.

1. Open the survey draft
2. Click language button and select Edit languages…
3. In the Language versions window add new language with the ‘+’ button and select the desired language
4. Click ‘Add’
5. Click ‘Save’
6. Check that all questions, options and texts have been copied to the new language
6. Click language button and select Edit languages…
7. Select the language you don’t need in the Language versions window
8. Click button ‘-‘ to remove that language
9. Click ‘Save’
11. Remove the text [Not translated] from the questions, options and texts
