New TeleMagic Language Converter
Written by George R. Sikora

We have recently created a new addition for TeleMagic v5sp4 that we call TLC (TeleMagic Language Converter). I thought that it may be of interest to some of you with non-English speaking users.
TLC converts "field descriptions (labels)" and TM buttons, on the fly FOR EACH LOGGED ON USER, from the base language into the language of choice. The default base language is English, but this can easily be changed.
We created this tool since more than half of our installs are outside of the USA, and many users prefer / require their own language on screen. TLC currently can convert up to 8 languages (e.g. Spanish, French, Flemish, Portuguese...) per installation. That seemed to be far more than necessary. Note that TLC only has been tested with languages that employ the English alphabet thus far, but I am told that Windows will handle the conversion to non-English letters such as Russian Cyrillic. We shall see. Also note that you (or your client) must fill in a table with the appropriate label translations. Our screens use many abbreviations, so our sample translations were not, ummm, perfect <smile>. I am sure that yours will be however.
Anyway, we are willing to offer this to any of you that may find it useful. Just make us an offer. There are no AMP discounts as we will not sell it individually, but rather we bundle it into our TRAXX! system. There is no support included, but available if required for a charge. It is rather simple to install and use.
If interested, let me know privately and I will send a brief description in a Word doc.
I hope that you will find it useful in helping you continue to promote and use TeleMagic.
