“It was great to have Verztec break down the language barriers for this ASAP conference, especially where English is not the first language in many Asian countries." - STADA President, Mr Lim Khia Tat
Singapore, Singapore (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Verztec Consulting Pte Ltd (Verztec) is proud to be the Official Translation Sponsor for the prestigious ASTD-STADA Asia Pacific (ASAP) Conference 2012.
ASAP 2012 spanned three days from 31st October 2012 to 2nd November 2012 and was held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Hall. As companies globalize, they face evolving challenges. ASAP 2012 is set out to effectively address these challenges by sharing the best HCD practices from Asia Pacific and the West.
As the Official Translation Sponsor, Verztec provided professional simultaneous interpretation for the conference and quality translations of conference communication materials, into several Asian languages - namely Korean, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.
“It was great to have Verztec break down the language barriers for this ASAP conference, especially where English is not the first language in many Asian countries. It encourages real-time participation and active learning among the non-English speaking delegates.
I am sure with the convergence of technology and language, it would be a exciting opportunity for Asian participants and non-English speakers to develop into a global learning community.” – said STADA’s President, Mr Lim Khia Tat.
The first day of the conference, 31st November 2012, also marked the official launch of VerztecLearning™ TrainersHub™ – an online portal that serves to marshal professional trainers all around the world of various nationalities, expertise and industries to join VerztecLearning™’s global trainers network for training opportunities.
“ASAP 2012 has once again been a truly remarkable and rewarding experience. The topics covered and discussed were very relevant to the challenges faced by corporations all around the world. The conference brought together HR global leaders and L&D professionals from more than 30 countries to network, learn and share from each other’s experiences.
At Verztec, we strongly believe that the most effective learning at the workplace takes place only by going ‘Glocal’ – a term which combines Going Global, Staying Local.
As HR and learning professionals, it is imperative to make efforts to understand the cultural differences, business practices (*and some cases religious practices) of the targeted learners, localize training content and overall experience to address those differences to achieve higher levels of learning engagement and eventually, better results. This helps to bridge language barriers in learning and most importantly, shows sincerity and mutual respect.” - explained Verztec’s CEO, Mr Nicholas Goh.
