Truly effective global eLearning requires more than simply exchanging the words and grammar of one language for those of another. As your cultural partner, VIA ensures that your translated messages communicate your brand’s voice and training objectives clearly to each unique language and locale.

VIA offers cultural evaluation and review services by country to ensure the course story line and exercises will make sense around the globe. Our instructional designers will work with you to create content that can be smoothly adapted for different locales. In addition to language, we consider critical features like individual vs. collective norms, social nuances and cultural signifiers. Translation is performed by only the best in the industry, native speaking and skilled in eLearning. Ask us about or stakeholder review program.
