Starting up again

I'm going to see if this blog will attract fellow developers to join in the conversation about bilingual e-learning.

Seeking Spanish eLearning products

I noticed that there are few CBT and eLearning computer courses in Spanish when I searched on the internet. Espero que podremos cambiar esto. Necesito oir a las palabras technicos en EspaƱol para poder grabar cursos. My written Spanish isn't too good, and I don't have a lot of experience training in Spanish. I can find a few books written in Spanish like the Dummies series, but I really need to hear the words and sentence structure. I'm going to take a crash course in Spanish for basics. I'm told my pronunciation isn't too bad, but without the correct terminology I don't feel like I can produced good quality training. If anyone is aware of audio/visual trainin in Spanish, please let me know.

Strategies for Bilingual eLearning

I am looking for suggestions for creating bilingual software application training. One thought is to use the branching ability in Adobe Captivate to give users a choice to view the same movie in one language or the other. Another idea is to take a linear approach and provide a drop-down text box with the instructions in another language. I would also like to give the student a choice of languages for audio.

Who would like to help with other languages?

I'm building a website that will have English and Spanish versions of Microsoft software training. I would like to know if anyone would like to help out with other languages. I would like to include Brazilian Portuguese and French (Canadian) to cover most of Latin America.

I'm planning on providing the training for free.

Bilingual eLearning Kick-Off

This is a topic I'm very interested in and would like to hear from other eLearning developers who are interested in developing bilingual eLearning. My two languages are English and Spanish. My area of expertise is in technical (IT) training.
