You can add multiple data forms to a project with the current version of Epidata.

On the main form, define the key variable and set it to be the key (Dataform menu).
Then click on the large + at the top of the left-side dataform bar.
To add another subform with the same ID, highlight its parent form and click the plus again.
The key variable gets added automatically.

If you do it that way, then you have to pass the database from one data entry person to the next.

If you want them to be working at the same time, then you have to create multiple projects that have the same unique key. You join these projects into one using Analysis.

You can enter or paste any other language text (any special characters) into any place in Epidata (field description, heading, data). So create the question in one language as a heading and in the other language as the field description.
