Introducing Multilingual Employee Surveys

We’re pleased to be kicking off the new year with a new feature: multilingual employee surveys. Find out what this means, and how to best utilise your local language when sending your next poll.

Ever since our launch, we’ve been mindful that many organisations signing up have been from non-English speaking countries. We’ve had our multilingual employee surveys feature in planning for a while, and are pleased to announce it is now here. Regardless if your native language is Cantonese, Arabic or Tamil, our system will now handle over 100 languages, in our effort to encourage engaging employees across the world.

In our office alone, we have employees who can speak Indonesian, French, Mandarin, Malaysian, Thai & Arabic. We want to encourage speakers of many languages to improve their work places, so it makes sense to allow multilingual employee surveys within 6Q.

To celebrate this feature roll out, we have added two new languages to our standard question library. These languages, Bahasa Indonesia and Hindi, are now accessible to all customers under the ‘My Questions’ tab.

Of course, our efforts do not stop there; we’re watching what languages are being used in custom questions, and when enough demand from customers for a particular language comes in, we’ll happily look at organising translation of our entire question set.

How do I use a Non-English language?

At this stage, we have populated our question library with three language choices; English, Hindi and Bahasa Indonesia. You can use any language supported, of course, these are just the languages we have had translated at this stage (more to come).

To choose another language, simply choose your language from the new drop down box within your My Questions > Add Question screen.
