Title – Learn how to provide web forms in local languages with OxfamDate – Wednesday, October 28, 2020 9 AM EDT Link  – https://www.surveycto.com/events/oxfam-webforms-webinar

The team at Oxfam have been ahead of the curve in their quick adoption of a new web form translation functionality on the SurveyCTO platform. This is not uncharacteristic, given Oxfam’s broader investment in localization and inclusion of local partners and communities. Oxfam is a global organization at the forefront of fighting poverty around the world. Data collection is of course key to planning, implementing, and being broadly effective with such a mandate. While it may seem small, having your data collection instruments easily accessible and not slowed down by language barriers is a rather large improvement. Through providing a fully localized web data collection experience, Oxfam aims to make their programs more inclusive and effective.

Oxfam will share their best practices on data collection localization more broadly, with specific mention of: The experience of preparing web form interface translations. Deploying localized web form interfaces on surveys.Feedback from in-country staff on localized form filling experiences.
