Changing the Survey Language

Changing your survey language switches certain default survey text—like navigation buttons and the survey end page—to another language. For the rest of your survey, like the title and questions, you need to provide your own translations.

To change the survey language:

  1. Click the Design Survey tab.
  2. In the left sidebar, click Options.
  3. Click Language.
  4. Select a language from the dropdown.
Multilingual Surveys! Add multiple languages to your survey to let people take the survey in their preferred language. Learn more: Multilingual Surveys

What's Translated

We provide translations for the following default survey text in over 50 survey languages:

Updating Error Messages for Questions with Validation

When you make a question required or add validation to a question, we automatically add an error message in the current survey language. Error messages let survey takers know if they fill out a question in the wrong format, or if they skip a required question.

When you change the survey language, error messages for existing questions do not automatically update to the new language, so you'll need to go back and update them.

To update existing error messages to match the new survey language:

  1. In the Design Survey section, click a question to edit it.
  2. Click the Options tab.
  3. Deselect the Require an Answer to This Question or Validate Answer for a Specific Format option.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Edit the question again and click the Options tab.
  6. Reselect the Require an Answer to This Question or Validate Answer for a Specific Format option.
  7. Click Save.

The error message will now appear in the current survey language.

Right-to-Left (RTL) Languages

You can change the survey language to RTL languages such as Arabic and Hebrew and write survey question text from right to left. However, at this time there's no way to adjust the survey layout to display question numbers, labels, and navigation from right to left.

若變更調查問卷的語言,特定預設的調查問卷文字 (如導覽按鈕和調查問卷結束頁面) 會轉換為其他語言。調查問卷的其他部份 (如標題和問題) 則需要您自己提供翻譯。
