Multi-language Surveys

Multi-Language Surveys allow you to create surveys that support multiple languages using translations. This makes it easier to reach a diverse audience without creating separate surveys for each language. This feature simplifies the creation, delivery, and analysis of surveys for a multilingual audience.

How to deliver a specific language depends on the survey type (in-app or link survey):

Creating a Multi-language Survey

  1. Open the Survey Languages page in the Formbricks settings via the top-right menu:
Formbricks Home
  1. Click on the Edit Languages button, to add a new language to your survey

  1. Select the preferred language from the dropdown and assign an identifier Alias. Click the Add Language button to add the language to your product.

In-App Surveys Configuration

  1. When you initialise the Formbricks SDK for your user, you can pass a language attribute with the language code. This can be either the ISO identifier or the Alias you set when creating the language. The language attribute makes sure that this user only sees surveys with a translation in this specific language available.

Configuring Formbricks SDK with Multi-language

  environmentId: "<environment-id>",
  apiHost: "<api-host>",
  userId: "<user_id>",
  attributes: {
    language: "de", // ISO identifier or Alias set when creating language
  1. That's it! Now, users with the language attribute set will see the survey in their preferred language. You can start collecting responses in multiple languages and filter them by language on the summary page.

For link surveys, the translation delivery is dependent on the land URL parameter.

After publishing the survey, just copy the survey link and append the lang query parameter with the language alias you have set.

For example, if you have set the alias for French as fr, you can share the survey link as

Here are two examples:

Without the lang parameter, Formbricks will show the survey in the default language you have set.

You can now start collecting responses in multiple languages!
