E-learning is rapidly being adopted not just in academic institutions, but also by businesses, government, and other organizations as a means to provide cost-effective, as-needed and on-demand education, training, special needs support, and security to audiences around the globe. With so much at stake, localization is crucial to ensure the subject matter is both heard and received by the local audience.
Whether organizations are developing or purchasing e-learning content or courses, Vocalink can provide localization assistance to adapt the content to the target audience. We offer a comprehensive array of e-learning localization services, including text translation; cultural assessment; adaptation of visuals, colors, animations, actors, and environmental factors; and more.
We recognize the many benefits e-learning content and courses offer to our clients. International companies rely on e-learning content to assist with change management; to instill corporate culture and values across cultures; and to extend consistent ethical, technical, security, and managerial training to employees. Given the need to package and customize e-learning content to different audiences for different reasons, working with an experienced localization partner is critical.
At Vocalink, language is no barrier; our linguists can easily match the translation and localization needs of our clients. They are supported by a skilled technical team that can work across technology platforms, offering voice-over, video captioning, and overall production assistance. We review each product for both native language and cultural cues, ensuring the content, graphics, animations, and subjects are appropriate for the intended audience.
Still in the design phase? We can assist our clients early in the process so localization is embedded throughout development. Vu, our cutting-edge translation management platform, allows us to directly connect with our clients’ authoring systems to efficiently flow source and translated content between the two systems. We are positioned to partner with our clients for the long term, using our Vu platform to minimize the cost and time required for processing updates.
To confirm the e-learning modules work as intended, we systematically test linguistic, cosmetic, and functional components in all languages across operating systems and browsers. We maintain the highest standards of quality, because we recognize our clients’ reputations depend on it.
