Our latest news, views and insights in to the sometimes weird, but always wonderful world, of Fenturi.
TRANSLATION & LOCALISATION: YOU ONLY NOTICE TRANSLATION WHEN IT GOES WRONG, THIS IS HOW WE GET IT RIGHT
30th September marks International Translation Day – a day to pay homage to the world’s language professionals and the work they do. ‘It’s very exacting, difficult work to do,’ summed up the head of UN English translation service, Katherine Durnin. Far from simple conversion of language A into B, the process involves careful consideration of all nuance in dialects, grammar rules and standards, tone of voice, and cultural relevance.
EQUAL REALITIES: ADDRESSING THE VIRTUAL REALITY GENDER GAP.
Only 14% of UK VR companies have any women directors on the board (Kings College & University of Brighton, 2019). If you are a man in the UK or US, you are almost twice as likely to have spent time in virtual reality (Global WebIndex 2019). This challenging situation roughly reflects tech’s status quo, however it doesn’t have to be this way. We are actively trying to reduce this bias within the VR and e-learning industry.
A FRESH APPROACH TO UPGRADING YOUR LEARNING TECHNOLOGY.
Until recently, most e-learning content has been built using Flash. This was all well and good since most learners were accessing the courses on desktops. Then touch-screen devices came along and learners wanted to access their courses on laptops, tablets or mobiles, whilst on the move or on the job. The problem …Flash is not installed on a lot of tablets and smartphones. Plus, Flash carries an increasing security risk. This means many companies are left with legacy content that simply doesn’t meet the needs of many of their learners and now runs the risk of becoming obsolete.
EMPOWERING STAFF PERFORMANCE WITH LEARNING TECHNOLOGY.
Digital Learning has the potential to promote personal development, encourage career progression and allow staff across a global audience easy access to new resources and useful content.
This was the challenge presented to our team by a pharmaceutical client keen to unlock the potential of e-Learning and unlock the potential of their leaders. With assets stored across multiple systems and staff unable to track their development or gain insight on career progression within the organisation, a sense of uncertainty was beginning to grow.
Why authenticity works for compliance e‑Learning.
There is an ever-growing need for compliance and risk courses on both a corporate and an individual basis. Here our client, a law firm operating in over 150 countries, wanted to implement a compliance series not just for their own people but one they would use to add value to their clients across the globe.
Our client wanted to challenge the perception of compliance training so the project had to presented in a fresh way and be different other courses so we set out to redefine the learner engagement.
