Store hotword and glossary definitions in a database for easy retrieval from ToolBook.

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!

  • 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!
  • 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 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.
  • I've used TB Connection for a very large project, a math application in Danish that needed to be translated into Norwegian. And it is a very very cool tool indeed. Another side effect besides translating is that you could use it to speed up development by creating "template" applications. So instead of different languages, you could "translate" from one level to another (a Physics app from 5th to 6th grade and so on.) Doing it this way allows your subject matter experts to create new courses based on the same "framework" as one original book. And they don't even need ToolBook to do so. This puts some restrictions on the structure of the new files, so it won't work on all applications. But it is a very cheap/quick way to get stuff done. (BTW I don't work for Platte Canyon:-), I just think it's a cool tool).
  • Very cool program. Best of all it was easy to install and use. In less than 1 hour I installed the program and had one of our modules running with multiple databases. In that hour, I also had time to play around with the Translator. Nice job.
  • Excellent tool. It's all worked perfectly to date.
