Round Tripping

Exporting captions to Microsoft Word is one of my favorite Captivate features. Why? If you export the captions to Word, any team member can open the exported document with Word and make editorial changes. Those changes can be imported into Captivate—something I call Round Tripping.

You can use this round trip workflow to create multiple-language versions of your project without having to rerecord or re-create the project. All you have to do is send the exported captions to an interpreter and have the caption text translated into another language. You would then import the translated captions into your project. Cool!
