I am using ODK xls to design a simple form for community data collectors to use (who do not speak english). I was wondering if it is possible to get the instructions when using geopoint in another language (malagasy) or is this not possible. If not I think a work around would be to use annotated screenshots as instructions before the question.
The languages available for the ODK Collect app interface are managed via Transifex and Malagasy is unfortunately only 0.31% translated. Each time there is an app update, they include any updated translations.
Here is the documentation on multi-language forms: https://docs.opendatakit.org/form-language/
I'm not sure how it will show with the geo widgets. But you could also try including a
note type question inside a
appearance set to
field-list to show them on the same screen.
