About Multilingual Surveys

You can create a multilingual survey with different languages by adding your own translations. Respondents can choose the language they’re most comfortable with or you can send a link that opens the survey to a specific language.

This article outlines how to translate surveys and how to specify which language each respondent sees.

We recommend that you translate your survey when you're completely finished building your survey. If you make edits after translating, make sure you also edit the translations accordingly.
