  • Congrats to all concerned with the programming, etc. Just successfully demo-ed it to those-I-must-obey and they were very impressed with its speed and ease of use.
  • I tested the following languages: Japanese, Korean, Chinese (PRC) and Thai. All worked perfectly! Everything imported back into ToolBook just fine! Since we had not been able to use ToolBook for double-byte language content, we have built up a library of other tools that we use depending on the type of courses we are building. Now we should be able to eliminate one or more of these other applications which will make up the cost savings to purchase the TTS.
  • Here is what you get for $895: 1. The ability to take your ToolBook program and essentially with the touch of a button dump all of the text into an Access database. 2. A Translator tool that you send off to your translators. Your translators do not need to have ToolBook to use it. The translator tool shows the "English" text on the bottom of the screen. Your translator puts the foreign language translation in the top of the translator screen. When the translator is done, he/she saves the file and sends the database file back to you. 3. You can now add buttons to your program for English version, Spanish version, etc. Your users can select the language they wish to use and the ToolBook will be populated with that language.
  • We use the TB Connection products from Platte Canyon (actually just finishing up an English to Portuguese project :-). We primarily use Content Connection, but also Media Connection for graphics with text in them. They work very well and our translators (Portuguese and Chinese) both like using them.
  • We just recently translated one of our programs to Chinese using Platte Canyon's TB Connection and associated translators (great programs BTW).
