Touch View Survey System (TVSS)
Purpose This application lets you create multi-lingual surveys that can be used with most touch-screen systems.

It stores the survey responses inside a database where multiple language responses are stored in such a way that linguistic results can be integrated into one result, regardless of the Language.

A new tool has been added recently to TVSS. It is called the Translate Language Tool. This tool lets you Translate your Survey Slides from one Language (such as, English) to most LTR (Left-To-Right) European Languages (such as; German, French, Spanish, Italian, Greek, and many others).

All you have to do is to pick the Languages of interest on the Survey Languages Tab of the Survey Form. Then go to the Administration Panel. Make your Primary and Destination Language selections and click on a button. TVSS will translate all elements of your Survey Slides and automatically load them onto the various tabs on the Survey Form of the Selected Survey.

This tool was orgionally designed with Microsoft Access 2003. It has been upgraded to work with Microsoft Access 2016 as the front-end, with either Microsoft Access 2016 or SQL Server 2016 as the back-end.
