MCM Learning, Inc. Kabul, Afghanistan
MCM translates written and oral content for a variety of international audiences. We conduct an analysis and then review in detail the instructional strategy for translation that ties the determined methodologies to the project’s success drivers with measurable results. These success drivers include all of the variables that impact the translation, including learner characteristics (such as literacy and tribal dialect(s)), environmental conditions and context, organizational conditions and context, and the key performance indicators for success. MCM designs translation templates based on the specific requirements of the designated audience, and utilizes multi-lingual human linguists who focus on meaning in the application environment as opposed to literal or software-based translation. When beneficial, we conduct pilots of translation products in-theater to confirm success.
