ToolBook Translation System introduced by SumTotal.

TELECOMWORLDWIRE-2 January 2007-ToolBook Translation System introduced by SumTotal(C)1994-2007 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Provider of learning and business performance technologies and services SumTotal Systems Inc (Nasdaq:SUMT) has released ToolBook Translation System (TTS) version 1.0 to enable customers to translate e-learning content for their global workforces.

According to the company, the ToolBook Translation System software reduces the cost, time and complexity of creating multilingual content. Using TTS in conjunction with either ToolBook Instructor or ToolBook Assistant, SumTotal's authoring solutions, companies can create multilingual content for their global e-learning initiatives. TTS is said to identify what elements of an online course need to be translated, serves up these elements to a translation expert and preserves any format or design in the course for the translation.

ToolBook and TTS enable staff to create multilingual simulations, tutorials, assessments, courseware and other interactive learning content. And if the content of a course must be updated because of a change in policies or procedures, translators can utilise TTS to handle these revisions without disturbing the online course's layout, hypertext information, pop-ups or any other data, the company claims.

TTS works with numerous languages, including Afrikaans, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. No pricing details were disclosed.
