Translating results using Google Docs and Word

Updated over a week ago

We know the importance of getting your data and results so that your product and business can thrive. When you run a poll, you will get all your results in English since all of our respondents are based in the US and are native English speakers.

We have many customers from all parts of the world, Europe, South East Asia, India, and Latin America just to name a few, and we know that not all of our customers are English speakers, therefore getting the results and reading them can be a challenge.

While we are always improving our platform, and we are working towards having poll results translated into several languages, for now, it is not possible (but we are working on this), so we wanted to show you a step-by-step guide on how to download your results, and translate them using online translation tools.

So, how do you read your results? Below you will see how the results are shown on your poll.

You will see the results in English. We recommend you use tools such as Google Translate or Deepl Translator Tool.

You will need to copy the text, and add it into the translation tool, then select the language you want it to be translated to.

Here is an example of English to Chinese Translation, using Google Translate:

To grab your comments individually, you can download the CSV file from your poll results, and from the CSV file, you can then proceed to copy and paste each answer to your translation tool.

Click on the top right corner of your poll results screen, and download the CSV file results.

You can also use Google Docs to translate everything in one instant.

  1. Copy and paste all your data into your Google Document.

  2. Click on “Tools” on the top bar section

  3. Select “Translate Document”

  4. Select the “Language” from the drop-down menu that you want to translate your results into.

How to translate results using a Word document:

  1. Copy and paste all your responses from you poll into your Word document (removing any images)

  2. Click on “review” on the top bar of your word document

  1. Select Language as seen in the screenshot above.

  2. From the dropdown menu select the language you are translating your results from, then select the language you want to translate your results into.

How to translate results in Word

  1. Pull up the results page, see this poll as an example for these steps.

  2. Open a new, blank Word document.

  3. Using your mouse, click and select all the text/images you wish to translate, right-click on the highlighted text, and select 'copy'. See video.

  4. Paste everything selected into the open Word document by right-clicking anywhere on the document and selecting 'paste'. It will look similar to this:

  1. In the taskbar, select the 'Review' tab, then 'Translate' and set your translation language. Select English and translate it to the language of your choice.

2. Once you've set your preferred language, then go back to review, translate and then choose the first option 'Translate Document’.

3. A new browser window will open with the translated document.

4. Make sure to save the link to have access to the translated document.

We are working on improving our platform constantly to better serve our customers, and are working on being able to have results translated into various languages.
