Training Localization, Translation & Adaptation

 

Training Localization Adaptation

 

We maximise the impact of a course through the localization & translation of its contents, plus the cultural adaptation of its delivery.

 

 

 

 

Adapting Training For Global Use

Some of our recent adaptation projects include:

  • localizing a health & safety course for a British company responsible for rolling out compliance training to 7 sites in Germany
  • translating and illustrating operational training courses for a Spanish company upskilling employees in their Chinese manufacturing operations
  • adapting internal training materials into Arabic for employees of a US oil company in Iraq.

 

Clients come to us for help with training courses or learning interventions they need to use in foreign locations.

Depending on the target culture, we take their courses, analyse them and make suggestions as to what we would do to improve the impact of the course.

This may be as simple as a few tweaks to the wording and some translation or as complex as redesiging activities, writing new case studies, re-writing whole course outlines and much more.

 

Global Training & Localization Experience

With 15+ years' experience delivering cultural awareness training courses across the globe, we have a solid understanding of what it takes to deliver training in foreign locations.

Each country, whether in S.E. Asia, Africa or Europe has its own ways of education, of wanting to receive information and of what to expect when being trained.

If you get it wrong, your training has potentially failed.

When adaptating any course(s), our key areas of interest are on:

    • The content - is the content written at the right level? Is it clear enough? Does it need images as opposed to text? Are there any culturally or politically sensitive topics?

 

    • The delivery - how does the receiving culture learn? Visual or oral? Are brain-storming sessions really going to work? What language does it need localizing into? Do learners expect a professor or hope for a facilitator?

 

  • The follow-up - how will the training’s effectiveness be followed up? How best to get honest feedback? What measures can be used to further learning?

 

If you have some training you need delivered in a foreign country, we would love to help.
