I have an iPad application, please see the attached image for the rough mockup of the screens.

Basically, the landing page is a language sector which is designed as language labels with a check mark to show the selected language

The second screen is a simple form, (I've removed the fields not related to this question) where we have a simple Yes/No question. I opted for the standard IOS switch along with the textual representation, which would be "Yes/No" equivalents for the languages on the landing page.

I need to make both these sections as easy and obvious as possible for the end users.

  • I think you need a designer, not sure what the UX question is here

    hi devin, we have actually designed it as per the mock above, however, the feedback was, this is not user-friendly and a bit difficult for non-tech savvy users.. so I basically wanted a general opinion as for how should these sections be laid out... I browsed through some options like usersnap.com/blog/design-language-switch but could not get a definitive answer

    For the style and position of the switch see how Apple uses it in settings. Commented May 4, 2017 at 7:59

For iPad App it would be best to use the Operating Systems default language for your application, because that option is chosen by the user while setting up his device (This logic works best when majority of your target users use same language ). So the first screen is not needed at all.

Start your application with the Yes/No form, but try to place the Switch button on right side because we read English left to right.
