The 2012 Editor Survey will start today on Wikipedia projects and
Commons. Many people have already helped with providing and reviewing
translations on Meta. But we can still use help for a last
double-check of the translated questionnaires as they appear in the
actual survey, to help ensure that survey participants won't encounter
issues when taking the survey in their own language:

We will monitor this thread throughout the survey for any issues that
might come up. But in case there are translation errors that survived
the review phase, feel free to correct them directly on Meta instead.
The translations are listed at
. (For those not yet familiar with the Translate extension interface:
Go to the translation that you want to correct, then click "translated
version" on top. The downward arrow ("↓") links on the left allow to
edit the corresponding translation unit.)

* In this edition of the survey, the translations have been imported
from Meta by bot, rather than manually, so we expect much fewer issues
resulting from copy+paste errors.
* The Portuguese version will launch a bit later.
* The above links to qualtrics.com are just for testing, and survey
responses entered after following them will be discarded in the
evaluation of results. Of course you are welcome to participate as
editor in the actual survey once it has launched. You should be shown
a banner invitation when accessing Commons or one of the participating
Wikipedias on the first time after the launch, when being logged in.
