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!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
