TOPIC: What's the point/function of the Language Select question type?

What's the point/function of the Language Select question type? 3 years 9 months ago #88964

Hi all,

Wondering what the point of the Language Select question is? I see it takes its subquestions from the "available languages" part of the survey settings, but selecting one or the other doesn't appear to actually change anything.

Conversely, the native language selector that appears does automatically change the survey settings as soon as a different language is selected. The only problem is it's not easy to see and prompt a respondent to select it, so I would prefer this to have its own page before the survey begins.

Any insight appreciated.

Hello,

At start of a survey, ask for "question select", after removing question selector in template.

You have the real prefered language of the user.

It change after clicking Next/sumit
