Hello,

This inquiry is referring to: Edit email templates > Invitation.

My participants are all receiving a link to the survey based on an individual token assigned to them randomly.

I currently have "{SURVEYLINK}" as the tag for a survey link but it leads to the version of the survey that is assigned to the individual (e.g., English).

How do I, within the same invitation, provide links for the English version of their survey link, as well as the French version of their survey link? In that case, the participant has the option to choose one of them to complete.

Thank you in advance!

Hi,
If you did not include a language attribute of your participants in the participant table the survey starts in the base language.
If there is a language attribute the survey starts in this language.

And on the welcome page and on any other page the participants have the option to change the language.
So your approach is not necessary at all.

In my opinion a participant should be able to select his desired language.
 

 


But of course you can do what you want.
Remove the {SURVEYURL} placeholder and insert two links to your survey with the language parameters.
As the only "not static" parameter is the token you have to insert a {TOKEN} placeholder.
Something like:
<a href="https://www.myServer.com/limesurvey/index.php?token={TOKEN}&lang=en">Click for English survey</a>
<a href="https://www.myServer.com/limesurvey/index.php?token={TOKEN}&lang=sp">Haga clic para obtener la encuesta en español</a>

Thank you, but there is an issue with the links. When I apply them and fill in the necessary fields, it goes to my university's LimeSurvey homepage that lists all the surveys available in that particular language. I highly think it's because I didn't provide the specific ID of my LimeSurvey into those links that you sent me.

My university server gives each LimeSurvey an "ID". For instance, 531312. Where in the links that you have provided below would I insert my survey ID?

<a href="www.myServer.com/limesurvey/index.php?token={TOKEN}&lang=en">Click for English survey
<a href="www.myServer.com/limesurvey/index.php?token={TOKEN}&lang=sp">Haga clic para obtener la encuesta en español

Sorry, a typo.
Of course you have to add the survey ID.
You have to use the link you see in the survey overview.
