TORONTO (PRWEB) May 10, 2018
Today, the education software company Xello (http://www.xello.world) introduces a Spanish version of its future readiness program for students in grades 6-12. Available in the United States, the Spanish version of Xello gives students the flexibility to build self-knowledge, explore options and build personalized plans in their preferred language.
Professionally translated, the Spanish version of Xello adheres to the company’s high standards for content, design and usability. Each assessment, profile, and navigational element has been translated to ensure optimal accuracy, authenticity and readability. The result is a comprehensive Spanish program that students find relevant and engaging with the exact same interactivity, rich immersive content and vibrant visuals that students experience in English.
"Language shouldn’t be a barrier to future readiness. Our mission is to help all students, regardless of background, create a successful future through self-knowledge, exploration and planning,” said Matt McQuillen, Co-Founder and CEO of Xello. “With millions of American students identifying Spanish as their preferred language, creating a Spanish version of Xello was a key priority. It’s a real chance to support and engage a student population who has statistically experienced higher dropout and lower graduation rates.”
With just a click of a button, students can change the language in their Xello account. Just as easily, they can switch back to English at any time. Language preferences are automatically saved, allowing students to seamlessly pick up where they left off when they next login. A student’s language preference also transfers to the shareable version of their Xello profile that can be sent to other people in their support network. With this capability, students can have more meaningful conversations about their options, goals and plans with parents and guardians who prefer to communicate in Spanish -- making it easier for educators to get everyone on the same page when it comes to planning for a student's future success.
Students can immediately start using Xello in Spanish by signing into their account, clicking on their profile picture (top right) and choosing Español from the menu. Educators can see what their students’ accounts will look like in Spanish by signing into their educator account, choosing a demo student account and switching the language in the demo student account to Español.
Xello’s mission is to help anyone, anywhere in the world create a successful future through self-knowledge, exploration, and planning. With over 20 years in the education software industry, the team at Xello has helped thousands of educators and millions of students become future ready with its suite of online programs. Based in Toronto, Canada, Xello’s future readiness programs are used globally by over 5 million students and educators. Learn more about Xello at http://www.xello.world.
