The 8 Great Questions Surrounding eLearning Multilingual Versions

Many companies have expanded into international markets where native languages present an immediate barrier for transferring knowledge, and equally, obtaining valuable information. Training material originally created in one language and with one culture in mind now must be localized to those of a different culture using words and phrases that are both relevant and engaging. The outcome of globally shared values, best practices, conduct standards, and strategic processes must be first learned, then applied, and then held accountable. Easily said but not easily accomplished.

This transformation of content to be appropriate in another language is what we call “localization”. There is little argument about the history of localization projects – expensive, time-consuming, and often late. As managers and directors responsible for getting content localized, there are questions that continue to gnaw at all of us – even after multiple projects are done and gone. We call them “great” questions because concrete answers still elude our industry to this day.

So, by the end of the webinar you'll know:

  1. What is the real impact of globalizing (localizing) training content … is there any ROI?
  2. How is L&D content localized … how should it be done?
  3. What are the complexities that drive cost and schedule?
  4. Why do so many language companies struggle (fail) to deliver localized versions on time?
  5. How can Instructional Designers influence the cost of multilingual versions in their initial creation of L&D content?
  6. After so much time and effort in achieving engagement in the source content, how do I assure that the new culture will be similarly engaged?
  7. Other than seeing content in a localized form, do people in other cultures learn differently?
  8. Is there hope that emerging technologies will reduce the cost/schedule of L&D localization efforts in the near future?
