With LimeSurvey version 1.90 being available on LimeService for quite some time now we are now reviving a promotion on we ran earlier. If you send us your updated translation for LimeSurvey we will reward every translated string with one response on LimeService!

For example: If you contribute a whole new language to LimeSurvey you can earn up to 2200 responses - that is more than 100 USD of value.


  • Any language is elegible where the current translation status is below 95% (see the translation status page on
  • You should at least have translated/corrected 100 language strings.
  • You should be a native speaker of that language - please don't try to use any automated translation because people will notice a bad translation and so will we.
  • All translations are automatically contributed to the LimeSurvey project under the GNU General Public license (Open source). So you are even doing something good for the LimeSurvey community.

If you are interested to help us translating and to earn free responses do the following:
