Remote training, instructions & motivation for international teams

Remote training, instructions & motivation for international teams

Do you manage remote teams? How do you maintain messaging, standards, and training across all your international employees?
It’s vital that organisations do the right kind of training with all employees, and implement it correctly in all regions. Ineffective development programmes essentially cost the business twice; once because of the cost of creating and implementing the training and twice because employee time is wasted if it’s spent on inadequate training rather than more productive activities.

E-learning: what is it, and why do you need it?

E-learning: what is it, and why do you need it?

So, what is e-learning exactly? E-learning is a learning system that we can obtain via an electronic device. Put simply, it’s online learning (duh). Now, e-learning isn’t some new hype, but something we’ll most certainly be hearing and seeing more of the coming years. And we’ll be using it more, obviously. It’s estimated that within the next thirty years, the world’s population will have increased to over nine billion people. It’s likely that millions of these people will operate and work for international businesses who have their headquarters based on a different continent.

Whether you need translation, editing, proofreading, localization, transcreation, subtitling, dubbing or entirely new content, we’ve got you covered.

What, in the name of Jean-Luc Picard, are conlanguages?!”

The reasons for designing a conlanguage vary: some conlanguages were created to serve as a non-political language in order to stimulate communication between people from different cultural backgrounds (like Esperanto). Others were designed for artistic purposes, functioning as supporting elements of imaginary worlds (like Na’vi, the language of Pandora).

A special Thanksgiving blog (with an American English/British English twist)

Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at Ludejo. While we were thinking about the things we are thankful for, we got distracted by linguist peculiarities. The differences between American English and British English may appear trivial to some, but if you’re working in the language industry, it’s important to be aware of the differences not only in spelling and pronunciation, but also in vocabulary and specific cultural expressions.
