  • 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.
  • I attended a Content Connection session at the recent TBCON. Slick tool and definitely worthy of your consideration. If/when our company does multilingual training, we'll be giving Platte Canyon a call.
  • We are very pleased with the Content Connection product line. It is doing wonders for us.
  • We just recently translated one of our programs to Chinese using Platte Canyon's TB Connection and associated translators (great programs BTW).
