ToolBook Translation System and Hotword Connection then have special “Translator” applications for creating and editing your other source databases field by field, caption by caption, and definition by definition.

  • 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.
  • We have done a lot of work with Content Connection. It has enabled us to very quickly and easily create foreign language versions of our programs. While there are some limitations and challenges that we have in many cases found a way to work around, we would not be able to afford the manpower and liability due to errors that would be required to do the translations the way that we would have to do them without the translator. Content Connection is a fantastic tool if you need to do translations.
  • Here is another example of how we use Content connection: Our programs are geared toward manufacturing companies, but the topics are also relevant for service companies, but require a "translation." No problem... we handle it just like a foreign translation. Extend this idea to doing "custom" versions of programs for various customer groups/types to meet specific needs and you have a very powerful tool for under $1,000.
  • I wanted to let you know that we use the TB Connection products from Platte Canyon and are extremely happy with them. The products are not cheap but a quick and dirty cost-benefit analysis convinced us that we needed to make the investment in the product. TB Connection makes the whole translation process go VERY smoothly :-) We are a small company and don't have the financial resources to contract a professional translation firm to do our translations so instead we barter with distributors of our products in foreign countries to do the translations. That means that we have subject matter experts, but not skilled translators doing the work for us. We needed an easy to use way for our translators to do their work with minimum hassles. We also don't have a large staff to maintain multiple versions of each of our products. The TB Connection product allows us to maintain ONE (yes ONE) version of each program (natively) and the audio and graphics are swapped out with the click of a button depending on the language. If you have experienced any of the nightmares of maintaining multiple versions of your products, you know how valuable just this feature alone is. (I know that I am sounding like an official spokesperson for the product, but I am not in cahoots with Jeff and Chris. I just think this is a great product.) By the way, we have successfully translated our products into Portuguese and Chinese and are now going to begin working on Spanish. I would recommend that at least you demo the product to see for yourself how well it works.
  • We just recently translated one of our programs to Chinese using Platte Canyon's TB Connection and associated translators (great programs BTW).
