On the 1st and 2nd of February, for the second year running, Global Lingo exhibited at the Learning Technologies and Learning & Skills conference. This is Europe’s leading Learning and Development event, providing a unique and exciting environment for all those involved in organisational learning, as well as showcasing the technology used to support workplace learning.

The show continues to grow in importance, value and attendance, year-on-year, and is always a great chance for us to meet with existing clients, as well as promote our professional eLearning services to a wider audience.

As you can imagine, with more than 7,500 visitors, 150 free L&D seminars, 250 exhibitors and two exhibition halls packed with the latest learning technologies, innovation and best practices, it was a very busy couple of days!

Other than the fantastic footfall of truly interesting delegates from all walks of life to our stand, as well as the meetings scheduled beforehand, we held a seminar session with one of our key clients, Kineo. The seminar, Achieving a Seamless Relationship between eLearning and Translation, saw a good turnout of interested parties. Alongside Kineo, we were able  to provide a unique insight into eLearning translation, both from a translation provider and an eLearning provider’s point-of-view.

The session received very positive feedback from the attendees, which consisted of a mix of delegates who were already involved with translations, and those who were looking to delve into translation for the first time and wanted to be sure the process they apply would be a successful one.

The topics examined in the seminar included:

  • Working with multiple stakeholders and how to ensure they keep to their deadlines
  • Avoiding the constant back–and–forth of questions and instructions between your client and translation company
  • Incorporating QA of the translated content that you can feel confident about
  • How to quickly and efficiently incorporate your SME’s linguistic preferences
  • Avoiding SMEs requesting multiple amendments at Beta stage

If you didn’t get a chance to attend, hopefully we’ll see you at next year’s event!
