Matrix question (kobo-matrix_list) with translation

Hi @Kal_Lam, hi everyone! I just created a form using grid matrix and wants to deploy in three languages. The grid type questions however has issues with the translation. It doesn’t load it. Is there a way around? Thanks!

Welcome to the community @ledrolen! Kindly please be informed that using the kobo-matrix approach you could still use multiple languages. FYI,

Thanks so much for this helpful information.
I was indeed able to manage it using the XLS form.
I hope that the bug with the form builder and matrix/grid gets fixed soon.

Have a good one!

@womgaalbert, maybe try using the normal matrix question type instead of using the kobomatrix if you have to make some calculations in it.
