The most crucial factor to consider when creating localization-Friendly e-Learning Content is how easy, clear, and useful it is for users to use.
No matter how well-planned or professionally conducted a course is, if it contains inappropriate content, learners may still undervalue its significance, regardless of the course’s subject matter, what the topic is.
Both localized and authentic original e-learning materials share this characteristic.
Localized courses with English-language content or examples that are difficult to understand can be seen as useless knowledge that is only meant to satisfy legal requirements without truly caring about the user.
Here are some suggestions for how to enhance your final localization course by carefully reviewing your original materials and attempting to localize as effectively as possible.
Improve your original user interface by optimizing them. Write course materials as simply as you can in English so that they can be translated into other languages more effectively.
Avoid using examples that are culturally specific in your writing because they are difficult to translate or won’t make much sense to readers from other countries.
To keep users interested, use logical, easy-to-use design.
Since most languages are longer than English, especially German, Russian, Finnish,… You might want to extend the text in your layout design.
A rigid layout will cause translations to be interrupted or to disrupt the overall layout, but a flexible layout makes it very simple to create localized courses.
Use common course interfaces and structures that promote natural learning and adhere to industry best practices. Complete the localization process To ensure that the end user can understand the content completely, audiovisual components should be localized at the most fundamental level.
Localized images with text are possible. Each language’s audio files can be recorded, or the recording can be easily accessed and translated. Videos can localize text that appears onscreen.
Voice over videos can have voice overs recorded in each language, or localized subtitles can be added.
In conclusion, duality checking of the fully localized course by native speakers is important to ensure a complete, accurate and effective final product for your international users.
All content must be localized, easy to understand, and beautiful.
