Hello all:
I just wrote a simple tool to allow me to pull a text file with a list of items into a survey group. It runs under Windows only.

I am using it to pull text questions in bulk into my surveys. I thought I would share it with you. It is early in development, and may have no future development, but it has been very helpful in populating my surveys.

I think this might not work when using multilingual surveys.

I didn't develop that feature so I can't help much.

Sorry I did not test importing into another language. Give me several days to see if I can repair the problem. Just to be sure I understand the problem: when you press the button to create the import file, it seems to work without an error, but when you go to import into LimeSurvey the "language error" appears. Is this correct?

I do not have any current plans to create a multilingual version of the application itself, but if I hear of several requests, I will look into it.

Hi!
Yes theres no problem with the program it self but when i try import it says the language problem ( when i look in the file and compare with the orginal file that you made it looks exactly the same but for me it says sv ( swedish )instead of en ( english ) so the program makes it to swedish but as i said dont work import it on the newest version or the version before it.
