Changing the order of answer choices based on language selected

Hello Kobo Toolbox Team,

I am wondering if there is an option to order the answer choices based on the selected language. For example, I have a list of countries sorted alphabetically in English, but when I switch to another language they will of course retain the same order. I have tried to add a new column order::german (de) to be able to sort them alphabetically in german but that did not work.

Is there a work around to achieve this?

Many thanks in advance

Hi @isdc_data_collection
That specific functionality is not available. However when you have a long list such as a list of countries, you could improve your form function regardless of the language using a search appearance as shown below and the example form search_appearance.xlsx (16.4 KB)

This will allow you to type the first few letters of the country to get them,
