In general

Creating multilingual fields always comprises two steps:

  1. Create the field and save & exit it
  2. Edit it again to add the translations

Provide translations for survey texts (Title, Instructions, Response)

Note: due to the functioning of the Multilingual module and the setup of REDCap at ZHAW, the Survey Response does not work as expected. Workaround: use the Survey settings to specify the text in all wished languages.

Create field survey_text_[Survey name]
