ToolBook Translation System 11.5 is now available! With a new user interface, the ability to have identically-named objects in different groups, explicit support for Text Panes and other catalog objects, a Word Count feature, ToolBook 11.5, 11, 10.5, 10, 9.5, and 9.0 support, and more, this is a MUST HAVE version.

Store (and restore) ALL content from your ToolBook application in an Access database.

Multilingual Applications Made Easy 

Use ToolBook Translation System (TTS) to swap field text (including formatting), button captions, question feedback, captions and body text of Text Pane catalog objects, text of Marquee, Shadowed Text Field, and Bullet catalog objects, and user properties, all based on language or another criteria such as reading level. It will even restore hotword hyperlinks and action sequences. TTS will even let you set different object positions and fonts by language. It will notify you and even fix problems like unnamed objects or ones with duplicate names. Change database sources “on the fly” if deploying natively or just build for a particular source and then publish to the web.

Streamline Development  

Manage your content within the database and “rebuild” your book whenever content needs to be updated.

Special Tools

TTS has special author-level tools for creating the database based on your ToolBook file. It will validate your object names, automatically grab user properties if desired, allow you to stick with plain text if desired, and more. 

Determine Translation Level of Effort  

Use the new "Word Count" feature to display the number of words and number of characters (both including and not including spaces) per language source.

"Translator" Application Included

Use this special application for creating and editing your other source databases field by field, caption by caption, and definition by definition. You can even send the Translator application onto your translation team! One copy of the Translator is included with your development license. Additional copies are available for $695.

  • Wow…worked great! All I have to do now is just to expand the fields in some of the text panes and select the field and click on “selection bounds & fonts” under “Write properties” to update the database. This is really great Jeff!!!!! Huge time saver for us!
  • 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.
  • We use Content Connection from Platte Canyon. Right now we use it for Portuguese and Chinese versions of our programs. It is much more than a database to swap out content. You will pay a very small price compared to what it would take for you to develop something even remotely similar in functionality, robustness, and ease of use.
  • TB Connection is an excellent tool that is very helpful for translating a ToolBook file. If you have to send the text out to a translator, the ability is there in TB Connection. You can also edit and change the text in the database app. Even better yet, you can set up the ToolBook application to switch languages when a user launches the app by using system books. I'd give Platte Canyon a call and someone there would be able to tell you more about it.
