The Course Evaluations & Surveys user interface text, date and time formats can be localized to just about any language you want using this functionality. In the background, the Google Cloud Translation API has been utilized to translate text within the application to desired languages. The Google Cloud Translation API supports over one hundred languages, which are supported in the Course Evaluations & Surveys localization functionality.

When requesting this change to your account, you will indicate your desired default language and any additional language(s) that you want to offer in your Course Evaluations & Surveys instance. Once enabled, all users will see a language toggle with your enabled languages, allowing the user to switch their user experience to one of the available languages in your account.
Surveys in Multiple Languages
In addition to language localization of the Course Evaluations & Surveys product, this release includes a multiple language survey feature to allow surveys to be authored and presented in multiple languages. This feature is slightly different from the overall product localization in that it allows user-created survey content to be presented in multiple languages (versus the application user interfaces). There are two elements to the multiple language survey functionality. First, users have the ability when creating and editing survey questions to also create versions of those survey questions in additional languages. Second, when surveys are presented to students/respondents, a toggle will show on the survey, allowing the user to switch the survey content to any of the available languages in which the survey has been setup to display.
Please see the video below for a walkthrough of this feature.
Note: The video refers to EvaluationKIT, which is now known as Course Evaluations & Surveys.
