Tired of messing with clips? Need to manage Flash movies or MP3 files? Media Connection can build your clips for you and allow you to change their source based on language or audience. You can do the same for bitmaps and other resources. Manage your references to other media types via simple OpenScript calls that return current file locations. Store narration or other content for each clip, resource, or media file in the database.

Special Tools
Media Connection has special author-level tools for creating the database based on your ToolBook file.

  • Prior to having Content Connection, we would have a separate set of books for each language and we would spend hours copying and pasting (which leaves lots of room for error - especially when we don't speak or read the translated language).
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • 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 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.
