Localize Table of Contents to Different Language

A recent question in the forum was how to localize the Table of Contents text to another language.

You can edit the CPM.js file in the Assets folder > js folder – use Notepad to do so:

See example below.

English

{overlay:false,position:1,stretch:true,alpha:100,texture:false,showSearch:true,showTotalD:true,showClear:false,show
Duration:true,statusFlag:true,hasSelfPaced:true,htmlFileId:19348,clear:’Clear Status Flag’,bookmark:’Bookmark’,moreInfo:’More Info’,slideTitle:’Slide Title’,duration:’Duration’,minutes:’Minutes’,go:’Go’,noSearchText:’No Matches Found’,

Spanish

{overlay:false,position:1,stretch:true,alpha:100,texture:false,showSearch:true,showTotalD:true,showClear:false,show
Duration:true,statusFlag:true,hasSelfPaced:true,htmlFileId:19348,clear:’Bandera de Estado Clara’,bookmark:’Marcador’,moreInfo:’Más información’,slideTitle:’Título de la diapositiva’,duration:’Duración’,minutes:’Minutos’,go:’Mi para Ir’,noSearchText:’No se encontraron coincidencias’

Make sure you edit the file after you publish your last version of your project. Also if the language has accents save the CPM.js file out of Notepad in UTF-8 format.

New to Captivate – Making a Template Master Slide or Film Strip

I’m an Animate (Flash) and once a Director developer. As the Flash player is coming to an end, we have decided (where I work) to use Captivate for our lesson publishing application. I have been tasked with making our template, and need to design choices that my other team members to choose from. Captivate seems to be similar to Powerpoint’s Master slide. I’m going to use responsive design with fluid boxes and I’m not sure where to design all of our possible layouts.

In Animate (Our current template) we have an Introduction slide and depending on the content we have various different layouts.

What we always have on a slide:

  • The top has a title
  • The bottom has the navigation and other buttons on a bar
  • In between is the content

The content can layout:

  • Text on the left  with graphic on the right or vice versa
  • Text on top and graphics on the bottom or vice versa
  • All text no graphics
  • Only Graphics or no text
  • Video only

Do I use the filmstrip or Master slide?

If Master slide, do I design the navigation there or in filmstrip?
