Hello, am facing a problem with the translation of Microsoft Forms.

There are some fields that we don't want to appear at the second language.

Is it possible to have less fields at the second language when using the multilingual function of Microsoft forms?

Hi @giaou 

 

If I understand you right, then no you would have the same questions in both languages just translated to that language.

 

You could try branching for that particular language at the start of the form. Confirm something like which language they are using as a choice question, and then branching in the direction of the line of questions required.

 

Not a solution but could be a work around depending on how complex your questions are?

 

Cheers

Hello and thank you very much for your reply.
Actually i don't think that branching will help for this situation, but it was a clever answer!

 

Hi @giaou 

 

No worries pal. Your only other option other than another service that could do what you need, is to consider creating a copy of the survey with the relevant questions removed.

 

Best wishes with your form and hope you find the right balance!

 

Cheers

Damien
