Translating Training Programs for Medical Device Companies: Case Study and Best Practices

A session at Society for Technical Communication (STC) Summit 2015

Monday 22nd June, 2015

2:15pm to 3:00pm

When creating a training program for international learners, there are many factors to consider, from budget, timing, design, and content relevancy. Companies can create effective multilingual eLearning modules with some strategic planning. By focusing on localization of the content and design, ensuring cultural appropriateness, and creating consistent content across all languages, global medical device manufacturers can find success with eLearning programs. Susan Stugelmeyer, Senior Global Account Manager, will walk you through a case study where a medical device manufacturer came full circle on the importance of strategic planning prior to a global eLearning launch. Susan will explain how:

  • To avoid mistakes that can turn off global learners and hinder growth
  • To create a cost-conscious, effective strategy for a global eLearning initiative
  • To create content that can be easily localized from one culture and language to another
  • To utilize tools and software to create an interface that works on a variety of platforms
