Change the Language of a Poll or Survey

With addpoll.com you can easily change the language of the default messages and navigation buttons for your polls and surveys. What is even better, you can change them to any language you want to!

How to Add a New Language

Adding a new language with addpoll.com is very simple and convenient. Once you add a language, you can use it for all your future polls and surveys, if you want to! Please start by clicking on the Languages navigation bar:

Choose the one that you want. In this example we took Poll Lang, the rest are analogous.

You will then need to give your language a name (visible only for you). This is important if you have more than one language added, so you can differentiate between them.

For example, Deutsch

 

Then you need to provide your desired translation for all system messages and navigation buttons. Please see some examples:

Please note: If you leave a word or phrase unchanged, as “Comments” in this example, it will be shown in your poll in English.

Once you are ready, please press the Save button on the bottom of the page and you can now use this language for all your future polls, if you want to. You just need to choose “Deutsch” from the drop-down language menu in the Poll/Survey Creator or Editor.
