TRANSLATE” provides compatibility between ThinkTank outlines and Apple  
DOS 3.3 text files by converting files from one format to the other.  
The program was added to all Apple II versions of ThinkTank (II/II+,  
“Videx,” and IIe) when they were upgraded from 1.000 to 1.001, beginning  
with serial * 830004281.  
Using ThinkTank together with DOS 3.3—based Apple II programs  
You need TRANSLATE if you want to use ThinkTank together with any Apple  
II program that uses DOS 3.3 text files to store information on disks.  
(DOS text files are identified with the letter I when you use the DOS  
“CATALOG” command.) Such programs include word processors like Apple  
Writer II, Screen Writer XI, and Bank Street Writer, and application  
programs as diverse as VisiCalc and Apple Logo. To use ThinkTank in  
conjunction with any of these programs, you must use text files as an  
in—between step.  
For example, to edit a ThinkTank outline with one of these word  
processors, you must first “PORT” (send) the outline to a (Pascal) text  
file, then use TRANSLATE to convert the file from Pascal format to DOS  
3.3 format, and finally load the (DOS) text file into the word  
processor. The present description of the TRANSLATE utility program  
deals only with the in—between step. For a more complete picture of the  
whole process, consult the ThinkTank User’s Manual and ThinkTank  
Technical Note 4*2 (“Using ThinkTank with a Word Processor”).  
Before you start to use TRANSLATE  
To TRANSLATE from Pascal to DOS 3.3, you will need a DOS—formatted disk.  
(To TRANSLATE in the opposite direction, your DOS—formatted disk must  
already contain the text file to be converted and its name must appear  
in the CATALOG directory.) The DISK—MANAGER provided with all Apple Il  
versions of ThinkTank can format, copy, or list a floppy disk for use  
with any Pascal—based program——and it can copy a DOS disk——but you will  
need your DOS 3.3 System Master (or a substitute) to format or list your  
DOS disk.  
Since you can only TRANSLATE from within ThinkTank, you should format  
(and list, if necessary) your DOS disk BEFORE booting ThinkTank.  
How to use TRANSLATE, step—by—step  
TRANSLATE is the fourth option in the “disk manager” command menu.  
Refer to pages 99—103 of the ThinkTank Manual for more information about  
the DISK-MANAGER.  
When you select TRANSLATE from the “disk manager” menu, ThinkTank will  
prompt you (if necessary) to “insert thinktank data disk in drive2” and  
“then press (spacebar).” Next the “dos conversion” command menu will  
appear. Select “pascal > dos” to translate from Pascal format to DOS,  
or "dos > pascal' to translate from dos format to pascal.  
Translate will prompt you to "insert pascal disk in drive1" and to
