Unique Multilingual Video Tutorial hits the Apple Mac App Store - SCOtutor for Lion

  (November 09, 2011)

Liverpool, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 November 2011

SCOtutor for Lion is a multilingual HD video tutorial, designed to explore and explain many of the new features in Apple's latest operating system - Lion - and is aimed at both new and experienced Mac users. Uniquely, SCOtutor for Lion includes optional on-screen subtitles in multiple, selectable languages - initially English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Simplified Chinese - all included with the application at no extra charge

SCOtutor for Lion is the first ScreenCastsOnline tutorial to be made available via the Mac App Store.

"After many years of delivering quality training tutorials via ScreenCastsOnline, I'm delighted to be able to expand the reach of my videos to so many parts of the world - not just the English speaking countries. Apple have had great success bringing their products to China and South America, and SCOtutor for Lion has language support built right in for these new, emerging markets. By publishing through the Apple Mac App Store, the distribution and e-commerce difficulties of dealing with these distant markets are removed, enabling me to focus on what's really important - creating and producing the best Mac, iPhone and iPad video training available." - Don McAllister
