About Word Clouds

Word Cloud visualizations allow you to view the most repeated words found in your results from Text Entry questions. This visualization displays a cluster of words, with the size of a word indicating how often the word appears in your responses. Word cloud visualizations automatically apply lemmatization to your responses so you can visualize your responses by their key words. For example, “transforming” and “transformed” would both appear as the base word, “transform.”

Attention: The word cloud visualization supports the following languages: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

Customization Options

For general settings, see the Visualizations Overview support page. Read on for settings specific to the Word Cloud.

Max Words

You can use the Max Words setting to determine how many words should appear in your Word Cloud. By default, this count is set to 50, so your visualization will display the 50 most used words from your results.
