Training Translation - Learn How to Be Prepared

When it comes to translation, instructional and assessment projects can be highly complex, due to their multimedia nature. If you work for a global company, are currently working with translators for your training, or will be working with translators in the future, you don't want to miss this event!

Join us as we look at the translation process in general and the challenges of localization of instructional material. We will discuss best practices and helpful tips for taking your teaching global.

Attend this session and walk away with:

  • A better understanding of how translators work. 
  • Knowing what to provide translators for a successful project.               
  • The ability to roughly estimate length and cost of a translation project based on examples relevant to instruction and assessment.
