The answer of Question type - Short free text & Long free text appear in the form of signs like: "????"
note:
that the survey and question are in Arabic language
and the answer is in Arabic language
if someone has to answer in English, no problem .and show his answering naturally
that means the problem is in the answers of the Arabic language only .
:whistle:

I do a lot of test for arabic and admin stats, can you make a bug report with a lsa file ?

We have a lack of testing files in some language.

Go to the respective survey, click on "display / export" --> "export" --> "survey arquive (lsa)"
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

You were not supposed to post it here, but in a bug report (see Denis post).

There it goes directly to the developers.

Big issue here : DB is created with latin1_swedish_ci

With 1.92 and 2.00: it's OK : utf8_unicode_ci

When you report the bug, please put the link here. Before it's fixed : you can take the last 2.00 version.

Seems there are some lack of default collation in your DB.

Please try (if you use mysql)
ALTER DATABASE yourdatabasename DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;

And try : deactivate/reactivate

Hi,
If you don't know : just put your hoster name.

But we need to know 2 more things :
- Your DB server
- What is the version installed at start (because seems there are some fix when utdating)

Did you remind the process ? What version did you install ?

PS: here you can fix if you have access to your DB

ALTER DATABASE yourdbname DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;
ALTER TABLE yourdbname.lime_survey_XXXX COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci
