Translation Source partners with learning solutions provider, Resource Development Company, accelerating expansion of global technical and safety training initiatives.
26-JUNE- 2013: HOUSTON, TX. Translation Source, a leading provider of language localization solutions announces a partnership with Resource Development Company, LLC (RDC) to provide in-country translation and localization of RDC training content.
With over 10 years supporting more than 100 languages and in-country translators within the oil and gas industry, Translation Source is uniquely positioned to accelerate expansion of RDC training across the globe. RDC strives to help their clients in oil and gas, chemical, and pharmaceutical companies implement training solutions across the entire organization. Most companies in the process industries have global reach and a need to standardize across the organization, reaching into several regions and languages. By joining forces, Translation Source and RDC are making high-quality knowledge transfer accessible to companies anywhere — regardless of what language they speak locally.
“Our partnership allows companies to leverage RDC’s first-class training so that knowledge transfer can occur anywhere in the world, seamlessly and efficiently,” confirmed Camilo Munoz, CEO of Translation Source. “Our objective is to adapt the content not only in terms of language but also in terms of relevance to any local environment around the world.”
“RDC clients who are already using our training content and clients who need to implement new global training initiatives will receive a significant benefit from this strategic agreement,” said Jeff Pickard, Chief Technology Officer at RDC. “We chose to partner with Translation Source because of their reputation for excellence and more than a decade of experience leveraging in-country translators with extensive knowledge, not only of linguistics, but also as subject matter experts with major clients in the oil and gas industry. This partnership will provide our users with the opportunity to easily and cost-effectively expand their training initiatives across the globe.”
Companies endeavoring to train their global workforce online, or to integrate best practices across the organization globally, create an increased demand for content localization in many languages. Instructional designers and trainers will agree, for training content to be effective and achieve the desired outcome, content needs to be culturally appropriate and translated for localized understanding. Translation for online training extends beyond simple word-for-word translation to include cultural usage and adaptation, technical information, and voiceovers. By using in-country translators experienced in the subject matter as well as the language, clients are ensured consistent content world-wide, produced cost-effectively without the need for the client to provide the language and subject expertise.
