Why Localization is important?
Most of the global companies train their employees in the English language. People with English as their mother tongue can follow the flow with ease, but other people will find it linguistically difficult to follow. In this context, translation plays a vital role. Each course module or training content will be translated into their native languages. This may lead to socio-cultural barriers which could hinder the progress of the company.
The process of converting eLearning content to other languages specific to a geographical region is localization. In order to design eLearning content for target segments, both localization and translation should go hand-in-hand.
