Import/export translations between Qualtrics and Meta
Open, Needs TriagePublic


We use Qualtrics as a platform for a lot of surveys, some of them large and multilingual. We currently have no reasonably painless way to:

  1. draft a survey in Qualtrics
  2. export the strings to Meta
  3. get them translated to N languages
  4. import the translated strings back into Qualtrics, per language
  5. potentially rinse and repeat steps 2-4 for changes. Or just step 4, if an additional language becomes available in translation.

It seems to me that there's enough of an API in Qualtrics to make this feasible. I wonder if someone feels like taking a closer look and either coming up with a prototype or fleshing out requirements and gathering relevant bits of the API.

The Qualtrics API:

This would have great impact on how inclusive we can be in our surveys, and on the quality of the translations we use in them.

Event Timeline

Who is "we" in "We use Qualtrics as a platform for a lot of surveys"? WMF or some WMF team?

@Aklapper --

  1. "WMF" in that we've just used it for the "ED Search" survey
  2. the WMF Community Engagement department (multiple teams)
  3. WMF grantees and community program leaders use it (using WMF-provided licenses) to run surveys in their communities.
