A survey is a method by which various entities collect data about diverse groups of people. Surveys are a set of questions that respondents answer so that observations can be made about their preferences and behavior. The data collectors can then analyze that information and use it accordingly.
Surveys can be done online, by mail, over the phone, and in person. Entities that use surveys include businesses, governments, universities, non-profits, and more.
Language is essential to a survey’s accuracy. If surveys are needed to reach a specific language group, a multilingual survey is needed to get results that will be helpful to the sender’s mission. Today, we’ll delve deeper into the importance of a multilingual survey and survey translation.
Spanish survey translation is important for surveys in the United States and international markets. North American Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the United States. Millions of people speak Spanish as their first language and rely on Spanish translations for their needs. Spanish to English and English to Spanish translation make up many of the projects we work on every day. As a growing language group, Spanish survey translation is necessary for the collecting entity to get insightful results. Spanish survey translation is particularly important online. Spanish-speaking Internet users are an underserved group, with a huge portion of the Internet still in English. Survey translation online is crucial to get answers that will help the surveyor make informed decisions.
