Online surveys  (formerly BOS)

Powerful, flexible online surveys

Changing your survey language ADVANCED

The following languages are currently supported:

  • Bosnian
  • English
  • French
  • Gaelic (Scottish Gaelic)
  • German
  • Greek
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Serbian
  • Spanish
  • Ukrainian
  • Welsh

To change the language of your survey:

  1. On your Dashboard dashboard-icon, locate your survey and click Design.
  2. Click on Survey settings in the left-hand menu.
  3. Under the heading ‘Localisation’, select your required language from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click Save.

Selecting one of these ‘official’ languages translates both the survey navigation and the help and guidance information.  It does not translate any text you have provided – i.e. the question text and answer options, and any note text.  You must translate the questions, answer options and notes into the relevant language yourself.

The survey language can be changed at any time, even after the survey has opened.

You can run surveys in languages that are not supported.  However, only the text you supply yourself (the text of questions, page and section titles, and notes) will appear in those languages.  All navigation and help and guidance information will be displayed in English.
