Getting Started

  • Create your Conversation
  • While you are programming the Basic Details, select “Change” under the Language.
  • You will see an option to make your Conversation a Multi-Language Conversation. Select this option, which will provide a list of options.
    • Select the primary language for the Conversation. This is the language that participant responses will be translated into for moderators and analysts.
    • Select the language(s) that participants will be utilizing. You can select up to 10 languages.
  • Click submit then save.

You must click save for these languages to be selected!

  • This will automatically create a mandatory Onboarding Poll in your discussion guide. This question will ask participants to select the language they will be participating in and will help our system decide what language they should see. This question cannot be edited.
  • Continue programming your discussion guide.
  • When you've finished programming your guide, click Translate at the top right of your screen. Note that this will lock in the languages you've chosen.

Once you translate your guide, edits will need to be translated manually. We recommend completing your guide to the best of your ability before clicking Translate.

Making Edits

  • If you would like to make additional edits to your discussion guide before clicking Translate, you can easily do so from the Discussion guide tab in the primary language you’ve selected.
  • If you need to make edits after translating, you will notice that your discussion guide edit fields are now locked. You can continue to make edits to your guide if you click “Edit in Multi-Language Panel” above each question. Clicking “Edit in Multi-Language Panel” will pop up a modal showing your question in each of the languages selected. 
  • You can now edit the question. Note that changing the question in one language will not affect the others. Edits at this stage will need to be translated manually.

Finalizing your Conversation

Continue making any necessary adjustments to your Conversation as you normally would, then publish when you are ready. We recommend checking out our Conversation Checklist as you prepare for your Conversation.

Conversation Experience

Moderators and participants should notice no difference in the user experience in a multi-language Conversation. To each person, the Conversation will appear in the designated language.

As participants access the Conversation, they will see all aspects of the Conversation translated into their chosen language. Ask Opinion questions prompt participants to vote on each others’ responses anonymously. This is the only time in a Conversation that participants would see each others’ responses. As participants vote during Ask Opinion questions, Remesh will translate responses into each participants chosen language for them to vote on.

Moderators will see the Conversation in the primary language selected in the Basic Details of the Conversation. All participants’ responses will be translated to the primary language in the moderator view.
