Interpreter Training DVD not working in PC or Mac

Postby csdavey » Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:21 am

Hi - I searched all around to no avail. I was recently called to translate for our ward (Italian to English) for those in our ward that don't speak Italian or for visitors (we have quite a few here in Rome). The sister in charge of doing translation for the ward provided me a DVD, designed to be run in a computer, that gives a series of exercises presumably to help one figure out how to translate better/more efficiently. The DVD was printed in 2007, approved in 2004, and is designed for Win 2000, XP, Vista, "or higher", as well as for Mac OS 10.3 "or higher". I've run it on a Windows 7 laptop, and it prompts to install Quicktime...I click through to install it, and Windows won't install the version of Quicktime on the DVD because its older than the current version...the version of which the DVD doesn't detect. I put it in a Mac runnning OS 10.10.3, and it will open the DVD, but nothing will run, and I can't find anything the application to start.

So my question is 1) is there a newer version of this software (and if so, can I download or have the ward order it)?; or 2) how can I get it to run on at least the Windows 7 machine.

I'd suggest downloading Quicktime here and see if the DVD will work after that.

It's probably the same information posted here:
