Did you know only around 360 million people speak English as their first language? Whilst 360 million is a lot of people, it’s not that many in relation to the world’s entire population.

Out of the world’s approximate 7.5 billion inhabitants, 1.5 billion speak English — 20% of the Earth’s population.

There are 6 billion people who don’t speak English. How many of them are your customers, or employees? You could be missing out on valuable insights if you only offer your survey in English.

An iconic attraction in London has 41% of their surveys completed in a language other than English. That’s a lot of customer feedback they might not have received if they didn’t offer a multi-lingual survey.

Multi-lingual Surveys

Enable your customers or employees to take your survey in the language of their choice. If a respondent takes a survey in their preferred language, they can fully understand the questions and you’re more likely to get accurate answers, and better insights.

Avius Surveys automatically translate responses into English, so you don’t need internal resource for every language.

Professional Translation

To ensure your translations are accurate we’d advise that you either use our translation service, or another professional company. Google Translate or similar services may get the general message across, but the meaning or context may not be interpreted correctly.

Automation software also doesn’t understand cultural differences, whereas a professional translator would have a better understanding.

If you’re going to go to the effort of providing your survey in multiple languages, it’s worth doing it correctly.

Use of Images

As well as translating the copy in your surveys, images can be used to help convey meanings without using a lot of copy.
