Dear colleagues,

a client would like me to translate courseware that is created in Mediator (version 8).
Does anyone have experience with this?
Is there any way to extract the text parts of a course and to import translations back in?
The internal format Mediator uses looks like a binary soup to me.
The way it looks now I would have to simply re-create the whole course in the target language.

Best regards,

Without installing the software, doing anything with such a proprietary format is hopeless.
I'm not familiar with Mediator, and I can't see anything on their website with regard to importing any kind of word processing formats, but I'd ask the client if he can deliver the text in a format you can deal with.
