Why Translate your E-Learning Materials?
When creating an e-learning course, you may not immediately think of translating your materials into a variety of languages. However, there are so many benefits to ensuring your e-learning is available in more than one language. Here’s a few of the top reasons to consider multi-language translation…
Enhance your reach
Why limit your audience to only those people who are fluent in a particular language? Translating your e-learning courses into multiple languages means you can connect with new and valuable audiences around the world – and allows you to share your learning materials much further. This has a fantastic effect not only on your ability to spread knowledge, but also on your reputation as a learning provider. It also allows you to get closer to your clients by speaking to them in their language of choice. In an era where personalisation is increasingly important, this is a significant (and valuable) step!
Boost your customer satisfaction
English might be the language of choice for lots of businesses, but that doesn’t mean it’s accessible for everyone. In order to get your e-learning materials in front of some of the world’s most valuable markets, you’ll need to rethink your language strategy. This is particularly important for ensuring long-standing customer satisfaction, making your clientele feel their unique needs have been accommodated by your company. In the case of e-learning created for your workforce, this also makes for more satisfied employees – and happy employees are far better workers.
While there might be some translation tasks which can be handled in-house, translating e-learning materials is not something that should be left to Google Translate. You need to peace of mind which comes from working with translation professionals, to ensure that you receive an accurate translation rather than a jumbled-up mess. Clarity is important when trying to learn, and words and phrases which work in one language may not work in another. For learners, being able to understand questions and materials properly is key to their confidence in your e-learning platform.
