Create multi-language forms

Save time and reach a wider audience by creating a single form with multiple language options. You won’t need to provide the translations as AI will do all the hard work for you. When answering your form, respondents can decide if they would like the form to be translated. All responses will be displayed in one place within your Results panel.

You can create multi-language forms with the following languages:

- Arabic

- Catalan

- Chinese (simplified)

- Chinese (traditional)

- Croatian

- Danish

- Dutch

- English

- Estonian

- Finnish

- French

- German (formal)

- German (informal)

- Greek

- Hungarian

- Italian

- Japanese

- Korean

- Norwegian

- Polish

- Portuguese

- Russian

- Spanish

- Swedish

- Turkish

- Ukrainian

Respondents will see a banner at the top of the form, asking if they want it to be translated. This banner will only appear if their browser language matches one of the languages you've chosen for translation. For instance, if your form is in English and you've selected Spanish as a translated language, Spanish-speaking respondents with their browser language set to Spanish will see the banner asking if they want the form to be translated into Spanish.

To create multi-language forms, you’ll need a Business or higher plan.

Add multiple languages to your form

1. Open your form and click the Settings icon.


2. Click Language.


3. Select your Main language in the dropdown menu. This will be the default language that your form first appears in.


4. Next, select the translated languages you want to make available for your respondents in the dropdown menu under Translations.

Respondents will only see the banner asking if they want to translate the form if their browser language matches one of the languages you've chosen for translations.


5. Click Save to save your changes.


6. Click Publish to make your updates live.


Now when respondents open your form, they’ll see a banner at the top of the screen asking them if they would like to translate the form to the language they have set for their browser.


When respondents click the Translate button, the form will then appear in their browser's set language.



How can I see the translations provided?

You’ll only see the banner asking if you want the form to be translated if your browser's language is set to one of the translated languages you’ve selected for your form.

As a workaround, you can change the language settings of your browser to see the translations of your form. For example, if you’ve selected Spanish as one of the translated languages, you can set your browser’s language to Spanish and then you’ll be able to see the translations provided.

Can I edit the translations?

No. Translations are provided by OpenAI and you won’t be able to edit them. 

How long will it take for my form to be translated?

Translations can take between 10-15 seconds to load. It may take a longer time for translations to load if your form is long. Occasionally, translations can fail as the request to OpenAI is too large. A form could be considered long if it has more than 20 questions, however, this is an estimate of a long form as it'll also depend on the length of each question. 

What language will my responses be shown in?

Responses for close-ended question types (Multiple Choice, Dropdown, etc.) will be shown in the main language you’ve selected. Responses for open-ended question types (Short Text, Long Text, etc.) will be in the language respondents have entered their answers in.
