Sage has run out of TM version 5 manual sets. No problem. The manals are available in PDF format. The printed (now electronic) manuals were pretty generic about what you can do in TeleMagic. They were not so good about detailing actual templates that we have buildt with TeleMagic to perform specific contact functions. Much of the information is contained in the online help system. (which needs a registry hack to run the *.chm files from network servers).
Likely they are available else where on the Web. But I like to get mine from "Down Under". Broadband for the Bush! Thanks Niall. The files were originally included on the V5.0 distribution CD under the DOCS folder. Nial also produces the most comprehensive Application Specific Documentation for TeleMagic that we have ever seen.
New TeleMagic Language Converter

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.
