Folks,
I have this scenario. Let's say I have one survey with 30 questions. I need each question to be written in: English, French, Spanish. Is there a way to do this with Lime Survey? If there is, please show me. Thank you so much for any tips.

Please show me which section of the manual Tony Partner? I am lost and that is why I am here seeking for help. And you basically are asking me to go read the manual.

Yes, please read the manual. Everyone offering help here is doing so on a volunteer basis in their free time. The manual has clear links to various sections so please do not waste our time.

Cheers,
Tony Partner

This forum has many different kind of people here Tony Partner. There are end users, professionals and developers. Reading the manual does not turn someone into an expert and make the feature or product work. This is why we have this forum, specifically this section of the forum for end users to ask questions like how "how do I do this...". I have read the manual and still could not find the answers to my question. That is why I posted this question seeking for some light. Now if you know the answers and have some good spirit, then be helpful and point it out.

Your statement about people in here working as volunteers or pointing end users to the manual link is unhelpful and idiotic. Of course we all know that not a single person in here get paid for posting or answering questions. It is just like keeping screaming out opensource is free; everyone knows that!

I have read the manual and still could not find the answers to my question.

I do not think you really read the manual.

Not a hidden topic but directly in the "table of contents":

where you have a step by step explanation with a lot of screenshots.
You really did not find this?

Your statement about people in here working as volunteers or pointing end users to the manual link is unhelpful and idiotic.

Pardon??? What was this?
Do you really expect us to repeat what is already existing - very detailled - in the manual?
A manual usually is made for end users, even if mainly end users do not read it.

Joffm, your screenshot highlighting the "multilingual survey" was very helpful. Thank you for shining the light.

There is a difference when providing guidance and pointing someone to, for example, chapter 3 instead of asking them to go read the book. Even when we try to teach a student a good moral story from the bible, we quote a phrase or passage from the bible. We don't tell that student go read the bible.

Your technique of sharing knowledge is helpful and appreciated. And I thank you for that.

For Tony Partner, he can keep his mouth shut next time. Because if every answer for each question in this forum is "go read the manual", then we don't really need this forum. :-)

Oh, just to point out.

I just proved that you obviously did not follow the hint "Read the manual".
By some reasons you seemed to be not willing to look through the "table of contents".
If you had done so, you would have found the answer to your question two days ago.

You are not such a newbie here not to know that we very frequently provide links to the manual or to other threads where the answer is given already.
The forum is meant to give advice to questions that are beyond the basics of the manual - that people really should know.

But I will also follow your suggestion and keep my mouth shut in the future.

I agree with Joffm, the link to the multilingual section is totally obvious in the index of the manual. Why would I waste my time copying and pasting that?

For Tony Partner, he can keep his mouth shut next time. Because if every answer for each question in this forum is "go read the manual", then we don't really need this forum.

Oh, I'm cut to the quick! Maybe take a closer look at these forums to see how many people I have helped...but rest assured that it won't be you in the future.

Cheers,
Tony Partner

@lefondu: Sorry, but your response is not acceptable.

Tpartner pointed out that this can be easily found in the manual, even giving you the link to the manual, to the very same page where you could find "multilingual survey". So it is obvious that you didn't even have a look at it and instead just went on your little rant. Joffm showed you how easy it was to find in the table of content from that link.

We are not helping in the forum because we are so bored and have nothing better to do than to go to the manual and search for the correct link for others.

Especially Tpartner is an invaluable supporter here in the forum and he has helped many people with specific questions and workarounds, that took him a lot of time for sure.

The forum is here there for specific questions and problems that can not be solved via the manual. Telling you that this information is available in the manual is totally valid but should be actually not necessary, because everyone should have looked at the manual before posting anything here.

Even when we try to teach a student a good moral story from the bible, we quote a phrase or passage from the bible. We don't tell that student go read the bible.


That makes things a lot clearer...

We are not missionaries. We don't teach good moral stories. We point you to the manual if what you are looking for is written there. A simple Google search for "limesurvey multilingual survey" would also have you lead to the manual post about it.

There are a lot of people here that help in the forum on a daily basis as volunteers (Tpartner, Denis, Joffm, etc.). But after all that, I am not sure how much the are motivated to help you with your issues now. I am certainly not...

Thank you all for the replies. Not everyone can be a missionarỵ There are people with knowledge and they can put it into good use, with kindness and courtesy. And there are of those who are jackasses; I don't think Tony Partner is one, but that is for others to judge. I am not pointing fingers here. But for all those who responded to this thread, I must admit Joffm is a great person, with knowledge and kindness, a true leader. And when Joffm offers to help or guide, he just doesn't just point the finger, he walks that person all the way through. And the proof was that he pointed me to a manual, circling a section that I needed to read to get the job done. And for that, I am grateful for his help. Thank you Joffm.


Joffm, I know you just want to help people out of kindness. And I thank you for your help. I would like return the good will and make a $100 USD donation to any person or entity of your choice. I will make the transfer now. Please provide a Zelle ID. You can send it to this public thread or private to me.
