Hi Abbad,

we want to run the same survey in all languages and all countries to make the results more reliable. Technically, people who fill out the arab form can live anywhere - for example in the Netherlands - or they could even have participated with vacation pictures last year. 

You're correct that you may need to adjust the chapter questions a bit to 'organizers' when that makes more sense. Leaving them out would not be an option I think.

The Arabic translation is under review. However, I am curious, is it possible to remove some questions/answers in particular languages? In some cases, there maybe confusing questions. Like asking about previous years of participation for a language spoken in countries that hadn't participated ever before this year. Or just unnecessary answers, like "Through direct communication with local chapter", as we just don't have any chapters in the region. It's possible, of course, for participants to just ignore those questions, but I would prefer if they can be removed.

Dear all,

please help translate the participant survey on https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate/tsint-wlmsurvey&filter=%21translated&action=translate . Translating should be quite easy, I'm doing it right now for Dutch. We are using the same software that is used for translating system messages for MediaWiki. 

Could you all please make sure that every language gets translated? Please note that you need at least two people to translate: one to make the initial translation, and one to 'check' the translations. Please log in before translating. 

We would like to aim for 7-10 days to get everything translated. After that, we want the participant survey to be sent out as soon as possible. 

Feel free to spread the message around and ask any questions you have. 

At this point, all languages can use help translating or proofreading translations.
