eLearning Localization: Building a Global Education System

Juraj Močilac 4 months ago Comment

When I first started writing this article, I had to decide how I’m going to style the head noun of the title. Is it e-Learning with a hyphen or without it and what’s the difference anyway? So, I did a little research and found out that the former was used in the earlier days when the concept was still new and unfamiliar to many. But as it was rising and slowly becoming a regular part of our lives, we dropped the hyphen so we could save ourselves from pressing one more key of the keyboard. That’s how I got to learn something new, even if it’s as banal as learning how to style a word.

Having in mind that well prepared and optimized website is your first contact with your prospective clients, I’m guessing you’d want to make website localization your priority.

Lokalizacija turističkih oglasa

Living in the new digital era might be overwhelming for some people or the business owners, but we can’t deny the fact that many activities are now happening in the virtual world, along with tourism and booking your next destination. Croatia is apparently trying not to drown in its own sea and the new market trends. So far so good, I would say, considering the statistics for 2017 which shows an increase of 13% in arrivals of foreign tourists, in comparison to the previous year.

Glocalization: Buzzword of a New World | Localization | Ciklopea

Just the other day I read an article on how we should be more open to the natural fluidity of language and its capacity for change, allowing the usage to define the rules and not vice versa. Therefore, it doesn’t surprise me that new complex words and neologisms are popping up at every corner. And like language, neither other products and services should be immune to change. I’m sure you’ve already heard of globalization and most definitely of localization, but the word glocalization opens up a whole new dimension.

Culturalization or What Happens When Content Meets Context

When my colleague first introduced me to the term culturalization, I thought it was yet another synonym for localization. I wanted to believe I wasn’t completely wrong, but the facts showed me I wasn’t right either. My spell checker, too, thinks I’m definitely wrong as I’m typing this. So, to educate myself, I did a little research on the enigmatic term and what I found really stuck with me.

Every startup has essentially one advantage when compared to big companies – a clean slate and the possibility to create a unique corporate identity and write a whole new success story, without being burdened by the failures or successes of the past. Beginnings are always exciting and promising, but for these very reasons they are also risky and that is why the examples of big companies should not be ignored.
