Goodbye Glossary Books
No longer do you need to store your definitions in a special glossary ToolBook file. Hotword Connection manages your definitions, displays your popup definitions, and implements your glossary.


Special Tools
Hotword Connection has special author-level tools for creating the database based on your ToolBook file. 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. You can even send the Translator applications onto your translation team!

  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • We offer our programs in multiple languages in both a native and web-based format. To do this, we use Platte Canyon's Content Connection which stores the text in a database for native TB use. Then, when we are ready to publish the foreign language version to DHTML, we select the language that we wish to publish to. The fields are populated with the correct language and we do the export.
