You have the ability to distribute your survey withing Explori in several languages and have one combined set of results to analyse.
You select the language(s) you want the survey participated in via the settings tab but if the desired language(s) are not listed, speak to a member of the Explori support team to have it added.
If you are copying a survey from last year which used multiple languages, the translations will remain and no extra work will need to be done if you wish to keep the same wording. However note that if you choose languages that were not previously used, you will need to add the translations in from scratch.
When building a new question or editing an existing one in Explori, you will find the flag icon on the top left-hand corner of the page and here you can change between the chosen languages and update the translations accordingly:
The bulk of the Explori questions have been translated into all major supported languages, but if there are questions which are not translated or you wish to suggest alternative wording for a question and/or the options, please provide the translations to a member of the support team via email@example.com and this can be updated accordingly.
If you are sending out your survey in several languages, a more time-efficient way of making the changes can be done by downloading the question in a CSV format.
The button can be found on the right-hand side of the Survey Builder page. If you are based in a country which primarily speaks English, select the delimiter as 'comma' otherwise you will need to select the 'semi-colon' delimiter. The will be downloaded with the questions and answer options shown in the selected languages. It will come in the format shown below:
Each language that the survey is set up in will be represented with a different column - in the example above these are represented as:
en_GB = English, de_DE = German and fr_FR = French.
Once you have made the required updates to the file, send it to a member of the support team via firstname.lastname@example.org and this will be reviewed uploaded for you at the earliest opportunity.
