Globalizing Training for a Remote Workforce
Training can be delivered across borders swiftly and bring your courses to life in every chosen language, with the same level of quality training across the world. Here we show you how learning content can be “globalized” through localization and translation for your remote and global workforce.
Developing learning content that is consistent and relevant to global employees is necessary as workforces become geographically dispersed, remote and diverse. eLearning agencies like Sify work with a large pool of native speakers and translators across the world to provide globalized content services to meet various training needs.
One useful tool used is location-based apps. Using the real-time location of customers and employees, location-based apps deliver relevant content to learners to enhance commerce, tracking, gaming, and more. Location-based applications deliver relevant content to people based on their geo-location. Location-based apps provide businesses with strategic data that can be used to analyze, understand and influence employee and customer behavior. This results in faster service, greater efficiencies, more lucrative sales programs, and enhanced experiences.
Customized solutions based on each company’s market opportunities can be created, while an analysis of location data can provide new efficiencies that can save time and money or generate new revenue streams. Location-based data is a strategic resource that businesses of all kinds are using to differentiate their offerings and gain competitive advantages.
A wealth of data captured from each of us daily, such as our purchases, the companies we do business with, where we live, our online activities, and so much more. Adding location information to the data can produce additional benefits, such as the following:
- A retail chain can text you a special discount coupon when you walk past one of their stores
- A conference organizer can track the number of people attending an event and to which companies they belong for post-marketing
- A delivery company can track packages from warehouse to delivery
- A weather app can show a user the local weather
- A game can adapt its format based on the geolocation of the player.
For global organizations, it is important to develop eLearning courses with its translations to other languages to train your multilingual workforce. It is therefore necessary to develop a translation-friendly instructional and visual design strategy, to translate your online learning content into the languages of your people. eLearning providers can provide a translation service with computer-aided translation and authoring software tools, and we appoint a knowledgeable person to oversee the translation process. Translation-friendly instruction, materials and visual design strategies can be developed for quality management.
