Today, more than ever, we must maximize performance while improving cost and time effectiveness. By crafting your training materials with a focus on efficiency, compliance, and adaptability for diverse international markets right from the outset, you lay the foundation for consistent success. This not only boosts the quality of the localization phase but also greatly enhances knowledge retention.
To ensure the success of your internationalization efforts, here are some of our favorite tips:
Ensure all your materials are easily editable. Avoid using PDFs, scans, flat graphics, etc., and provide all reference materials. This will speed up the entire process and save time and money.
Avoid slogans and idiomatic expressions that are not applicable in all cultures.
Create approved glossaries in advance of translation, increasing both local engagement and heightened quality.
Keep localization in mind when planning visuals for international audiences. High-quality visuals can be the game-changer for any content, on any medium. Get the visuals right, and watch legitimacy and trainee engagement skyrocket. Get them wrong (in unexpected ways) and lose your audience!
