guten Tag, こんにちは, bonjour, hola!
Poll Everywhere is used around the world - in meetings, conferences
Your audience or class can respond via the web from anywhere in the world or text our response numbers. In some countries, we even offer local or regional SMS texting numbers.
Create poll questions and response options in your native language. And see the responses from your audience or class in the language they wrote them in.
Your own web response page
Accept responses entirely on your own web response page at www.pollev.com/yourname - available to anyone in the world with a web browser.
SMS text responses
We offer local and regional SMS texting numbers wherever it's possible. Audiences or classes can also message long distance to our international numbers where their plans allow.
We had an international audience from more than 5 countries all voting on the best music video. We're gonna use Poll Everywhere again this year - it's perfect for this kind of event.

Response instructions available in over 25 languages
You can change the language of your poll's response instructions to match the primary language of the audience.
This change only affects the main poll chart display. Instructions displayed on the audience's phones or devices will be in English.
Available languages include: Danish, Dutch, Greek, English, Spanish, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Swedish, Swahili, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese, and many more.
What countries have SMS service?
Each audience member's ability to respond by SMS depends on their particular carrier and particular plan, and the coverage we provide through our international message service partners.
SMS Service by continent
Which number should my audience text?
There are two different kinds of phone numbers:
Regional numbers that can receive text messages from outside the country. Audience members that have cell phone plans outside that country will have to dial internationally and incur any applicable texting charges.
Local numbers that can only receive text messages from within the country, these should be easier for locals to dial. Audience members that are local to that country will not incur long distance texting charges although standard message rates may apply.
If your audience is from different countries, you can share multiple numbers. The responses will all appear in your poll results no matter which number they were submitted through. (Note that our poll instructions will only be able to show one number due to space constraints, but you can share the complete set of options on a slide, sign, or handout or include it in an email to participants.)
Complete instructions and a list of phone numbers to share with your audience members can be found in our User Guide.
