                              Add Languages

                              With marketplaces expanding around the globe, there is an ever-increasing need to collect feedback from wider audiences. To get the most accurate results, you need to hear from the right participants, and that often means creating surveys in a variety of languages. Multilingual surveys can help you reach and research a broad, global network of customers, employees, vendors, partners, and prospects.

                              SoGoSurvey is a global platform, serving customers all around the world. Build a survey in our platform, and in just a few clicks, auto-translate and launch that one survey in many different languages.

                              You can add multiple language for your participants to choose from or build your entire survey in a single language. Below, you’ll find a list of available Primary and Secondary Languages.

                              Primary Language is the survey’s main language of participation and once selected, it cannot be changed if you add questions. The following options are available as Primary Languages:
