Challenges of multilingual surveys in separate surveys

Running surveys in multiple languages is a fantastic way of extending the reach and effectiveness of your online survey programs.

But spreading your responses out across several surveys, one for each language, can be time-consuming and difficult:

  • You need to distribute different links for each survey, leading to a chance that respondents may never see the right link for their language.
  • After the survey’s been done, reporting is made more challenging in a number of ways – results are spread across several surveys, meaning that to get a unified set of results, you need to export and combine the responses into a single spreadsheet.
  • Often, you’ll also need to translate response text for multiple-choice questions back into any language you want to report in.

Advantages of multilingual surveys in a single survey

Running a multilingual survey takes away these difficulties by allowing a single survey to contain multiple survey translations at once:

  • Respondents can follow a single link to the survey and choose the language that’s right for them.
  • You can give respondents the option to change their language selection at any point of the survey.
  • Your responses are all stored together for combined reporting and can be filtered by the selected language.
