Language matters. While its primary function is to enable human communication, it also serves as a means of linking individuals and establishing cultural bonds and norms. And, of course, it’s a fundamental basis for learning. But the effective localization of content, especially learning content, needs much more than just a basic translation of words and phrases. Taking account of the subtle intricacies involved in the mix of language and culture is crucial to successful learner engagement and the achievement of better learning outcomes.

Join us in this complimentary Training Industry webinar, sponsored by RWS. Your host, Rachel Cary, eLearning solutions consultant of RWS, will explore real-life examples of an alternative to the traditional localization model of “English-first translation.” The “concurrent authoring” approach addresses the need to create learning content for training initiatives where language and cultural connections are crucial to delivering a positive learning experience.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The importance of considering the cultural background of learners when creating content.
  • An alternative to the traditional localization model of “English-first translation.”
  • Why subtle intricacies involved in language and culture is critical to learner engagement and outcomes.
