Solved Create Church PowerPoint presentation CD in several language

January 8, 2016 at 13:06:37
Specs: Windows 7
My Church is preparing to reproduce our PowerPoint presentation on CD in English, Zulu, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Punjabi, and perhaps another.

We propose to press the various languages on the one CD using certain common files such as images. Will there be any difficulty saving the different languages (many of which are in Sanskrit) in my English PowerPoint 2003?

All advice on this question and likely pitfalls will be appreciated.

God bless,

Anthony

Oh I see, alright. I apologize, I thought I understood you.

You can make them all part of one presentation. When you work with PowerPoint, you insert things in tiles. You can, by default, hide some tiles that will become visible upon a click. Just write the languages out in these tiles and hide all of them. You can them program a hyperlink to change the visibility of them to become visible when clicked.

You should be able to save them that way, yes. As long as no odd characters are used in the name, I can't see Microsoft having an issue with that.

All audio for PowerPoint presentations can be added as .mp3 or .wav files. So as long as the audio is added correctly, no, you should not have a problem having it in various languages.

Dear Gestohlenseele,

Thank you very much for your reply. I have some questions. This presentation is intended from viewing the CD.

What I have in mind is for the CD to open a menu page from which the User may select his language. Should these buttons link to six separate PP programs, and will they start from a hyperlink? Or should we make them all part on the one pp program.

We will be making the common audio and videos on the CD external in order to save space.

Your advice will be appreciated.

Secondly, will we be able to modify hyperlinks within Sanskrit languages and save them without corrupting the files in our English language PP programs?

Kind regards,

Anthony

You can have various buttons linked to different audio files, yes. The audio you would have playing in PowerPoint is not language sensitive, as long as it's a correct audio file, it will play along with the visuals you have presented.

As far as modifying the hyperlinks, depending on your language settings, you would have to go with programming the slideshow in it's native language. So if your Microsoft PowerPoint is in English, you will only be able to work with it using the English language unless you change it. However, you can type in other languages within the slideshow itself.

I hope this answers your questions okay. I think I am understanding you correctly with what you need.

Dear Gestohlenseele,

Thank you for your response. I should have expressed myself more clearly.

What I have in mind is for the CD to open a menu page from which the User may select his language.

The six languages will be WRITTEN, not audio. Should these buttons link to six separate PP programs, and will they start from a hyperlink? OR should we make them all part on the one PP program.

Your advice will be much appreciated.

Secondly, will we be able to modify hyperlinks within PP presentations of written Sanskrit languages in script (text) and save them without corrupting the files in our English language PP programs?

Kind regards,

Anthony
