Also in a template the following localised strings available. These parameters are marked by the double braces {{...}}.

These items are translated depending on the command line -Language switch.

For example, with -Language 0x409 (English) these parameters will give the following values:

Localised strings

  • {{Title}} - "Title"
  • {{Group}} - "Group"
  • {{Student}} - "Student"
  • {{Course}} - "Course"
  • {{Section}} - "Section"
  • {{Day}} - "Day"
  • {{Lesson}} - "Lesson"
  • {{CourseGoals}} - "Course goals"
  • {{Overall}} - "Overall rating"
  • {{Done}} - "Done"
  • {{TimeSpent}} - "Time spent"
  • {{LastChange}} - "Last change"
  • {{GeneratedBy}} - "Generated by"

And parameters the values which, depending on the command line switches:

  • {{PERIOD}} - depending on the switch -Aggregate gives: "Lesson", "Date", "Section" or "Course"
  • {{SPEED}} - depending on the switch -WPM.. gives: "Speed, WPM", "Speed, CPM" etc.
  • {{ACCURACY}} - depending on the switch -WordAccuracy.. gives: "Acuracy, words", "Acuracy, characters" etc.
  • {{TIMEOUT}} - depending on the switch -WordAccuracy.. gives: "Slowdown, words", "Slowdown, characters" etc.
  • {{FIXED}} - depending on the switch -WordAccuracy.. gives: "Words fixed", "Characters fixed" etc.
