You can also filter on comments based on their original language.
Who can use translations?
Everyone is able to see and use the translation feature on comments reports and shared reports providing the Survey admin has enabled the feature on the account via report settings.
Is it available on all surveys?
This feature is available on all surveys except Effectiveness 360's and Performance surveys.
Is it enabled at the account or survey level?
Once you have allowed translations on your account the toggle to translate your comments will be available on all surveys. You will however need to check the box to translate your comments within the comment report on each individual survey.
Why aren't all my comments translated?
Translation of your comments happens at a report level (not view level) so when you check the "translate my comments box" any eligible comments will be translated. However, It is likely that some of your comments are in a language our Google does not support. If you're seeing comments in their original language please check the table above to see if that language is supported.
