eLearning as part of Localization and its Benefits
Localization is the process of converting content from one language into the language of your target market, keeping in mind cultural and linguistic variables. When it comes to e-learning being localized…the process gets a little more complex as all the material is online. A very basic way of explaining it would be the process of taking a book of study material, translating the entire book and then converting it into a softcopy; but all this need to be done keeping in mind that the course need to be learner friendly, as there is most often no instructor involved. Due to the non-presence of an instructor you will find that most e-learning courses will include video recordings as well to aid the course.
