Microsoft

With Forms, Microsoft strives to deliver the best user experience for form designers, respondents, and collaborators. We believe that a key element in creating the best user experience is starting with an intuitive design. We are excited to share two recent advancements in Forms’ design: Multilingual Support, and Office Suite Header.

 

One of the most foundational components of an intuitive design is the ability to choose the language in which you are interacting with the tool. To achieve this, we have added Multilingual Support. With Multilingual Support, the form designer can add multiple language versions, which allows respondents to choose their preferred language. All responses will then be stored in a single form for easy analysis.

 

Users can find the “Multilingual” option in “More form settings (…).”

Either search or choose from the language list to add the language desired. A single form can support up to 11 languages, including the form’s primary language.

Click the pencil icon next to each language added, this will allow users to manually translate questions for that language.

 

Afour.png

Once all questions are translated, the form will look like this example for Chinese:

 

Afive.png

 

The respondent will receive the form in their default language. If preferred, they can select another language in the dropdown list at the top of the form.

All responses, no matter the language in which respondents answered, will appear in the designer’s primary language. Click the “More details” link under each question, to see a column view of how each language group responded. When viewing results in Excel, this language column will also show up in the workbook.

To Improve navigation and coherence across the Office apps, a new suite header has been added for Microsoft Forms. With the new suite header, users can easily navigate between O365 apps and switch between accounts. Additionally, users will experience smoother transition between group forms and improved visibility of the save status.

MS needs to develop a forms app so it's easier to do on my mobile device. also because I export every single form into a PDF, questions that have open-ended answers have to be clipped and then pasted into a document and then saved as a PDF and then I have to take that PDF and attach it to the other PDF. it's really freaking annoying. why, when I export a form into a PDF, will it not export all of the open-ended questions

Is this multilingual support in MS form is free or its a Pro version feature which will require license after 30 days?

Regular Visitor

@poojac19 Currently its available for all O365 users ie also for education licenses (Free) but not available for hotmail/outlook users.

for me multi language its not changing the question language but others worked ie alignment  (RTL, LTR) and response area tool-tip shown in different languages.

Multi languages is currently not available for Quiz

@abdulrehman_binaltaf : Thansk for your reply. can you please also help me with what is the difference between multilingual support in Ms forms & Ms form pro version ? I though its a Pro feature

Regular Visitor

@poojac19 just send email at abdulrehman_binaltaf@hotmail.com and i will provide you access to 1 account so you will compare.

Multilingual is nice, but how about the elephant in the room: the option to add/upload documents? The silence around this topic has been deafening and its such a show stopper for many...

Occasional Visitor

Cool feature. 

 

Any chance of adding a 'finish later' option?

Hi, i have difficulties with ms. form, it doesn't show the response result analysis based on questions.

How to manage this? thanks!
