Have you thought about  implementing international research strategies for your company or clients but found it too intimidating to try?

Join SurveyAnalytics as we team up with Language Intelligence to give you the right tools to conduct actionable research on a global scale.

Localization is the process used to adapt your survey to a particular language and culture. Internationalization, then, is the process of planning, designing and implementing a culturally neutral survey which can be easily localized.

Some questions we'll address in this webinar are:

  • How do you prepare your English survey so that accurate localization is possible?

  • How can you be sure that the data collected will accurately represent your international markets?

  • How will you know that your translated surveys are culturally appropriate?

  • What are some common pitfalls to avoid?

This discussion will explore how to conduct successful global research as effectively and efficiently as possible. We'll examine best practices for reaching all of your target locales. From cultural considerations to word selection and structure, you will hear from localization experts about how to properly internationalize your survey questions, demographics, scales, and concepts. We will also examine some common challenges that localization and translation can present along the way.
