eLearning Localization Versus Translation

One of the most common misconceptions about eLearning localization is that it’s all about straightforward translation. While translating content is an integral part of the process, localization takes it many steps further by adapting the content based on cultural norms, associations, and learning preferences. For example, the process might involve using navigation icons that learners are already familiar with or incorporating images that resonate with them. Improved knowledge retention, increased engagement, and compliance risk mitigation are just a few of the benefits that can help you make a strong business case for your first eLearning localization project.

The key is knowing when to get the ball rolling so that localization doesn’t become an afterthought. Ideally, you should start the planning phase before content creation. Clarifying objectives, gathering your source files, and preparing a style guide can help you expedite the process. This also gives you the opportunity to avoid delays, such as having to rework your entire course template to accommodate languages that occupy more space.
