The spoken text is not a question

or it it's a question "is this a tool" should be accepted as an answer

Yes, but "This is a tool?" is a closer translation, and the difference could be important in certain contexts ("Is this a tool?" doesn't necessarily convey disbelief).

No, you're right, the intonation isn't correct.
