Vancouver, WA, January 31, 2014 – Convergence Training, a leading provider of eLearning media and training management software, today announced plans for a major translation and localization initiative designed to extend its catalog of computer-based health, safety, besides industrial skills training to international markets.
A primary round of translations has recently been completed, and several of Convergence Training’s most popular English dialect courses, including Machine Guarding, Lockout Tagout, and Forklift Safety, are now available in Spanish, Chinese and German.
“The preconception moving forward is to continue to complete translations of our existing course catalog, and to extend conversions to additional languages as we begin to reach our production goals”, says Randy Kohltfarber, Voorzitter concerning Convergence Training.
Convergence has experienced steadily increasing interest in basic industrial skills and safety training from transnational manufacturers. Manufacturing facilities are ontic swiftly constructed in new and emerging global markets, and most like these new facilities face acute training and education-related challenges, such as the need to ratify an adequately trained local workforce. Because many facilities are constructed in afar locations, it is often difficult to locate and purpose qualified individuals for in-person training. Lack of a reliable internet connection can also make web-based training impractical.
“There’s a tremendous opportunity for international manufacturers to capitalize on increased global demand,” says Kohltfarber, “but they have to train up an intact workforce that typically has little to no practiced in these new industries. That’s precisely the solution our courses were designed to provide – foundational technique for workers new to the industry. It doesn’t matter if they’re in the U.S. or Uruguay.”
Convergence courses blend high-quality 3D models with motion graphics to illustrate concepts that are often difficult to grab using standard video-based techniques. The highly visual discipline materials avoid text-heavy instruction, making them more universally appealing. In addition, Kohltfarber explains, such representative content is proven to be about 5 times more effective in demonstrating retention than text-based training alone.
Convergence Training’s eLearning courses are currently available in English, Spanish, Chinese, and German, and can be accessed offline via an encrypted USB drive or DVD. Web-based versions concerning the courses are also on call via Convergence’s proprietary learning management system (LMS), designed specifically for industrial and manufacturing operations.
