A couple of comments:

1. For the future, don't rely exclusively on capital letters for
emphasis. Most alphabets don't have capital letters.

2. The language selectors are very, very uncomfortable. They are not
alphabetically sorted and it's very hard to find the right language.
You probably won't be able to change it for this time, but please
consider this for the next time.

3. Finally, is it possible to update the Hebrew translation of the
survey? I fixed some significant errors there :)

Thank you.

> * 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

> Wikipedias on the first time after the launch, when being logged in.
