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!
  • 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.
  • Important things to note: ONE ToolBook with all languages - a huge file management benefit. Ease of use for your translators. If somewhere down the line you find that you need a new language - no problem. You are all set up to very easily add the new language assuming that you can find someone to do the translation. If you have media that also needs to be translated, Platte Canyon has a similar product for media. (They sell a bundled connection package for under $2000.)
  • 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.
  • We just recently translated one of our programs to Chinese using Platte Canyon's TB Connection and associated translators (great programs BTW).
  • 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.
