Chief Technology Officer at Global eLearning
Segura has held the title of Chief Technology Officer for four years at Compass Languages and Global eLearning. In this discussion, he notes, “On the surface, language companies find translators, interpreters, graphic designers, and voice actors to convert text, images, and audio content into another language. Global companies can use technology to leverage information and materials to get more done with less.” Global eLearning’s localization and eLearning team of linguists, project managers, and L&D professionals are able to help customers accomplish more by implementing specialized strategies. With the use of technology, Global eLearning can process large amounts of bulk content in a seamless, efficient manner. This also helps clients standardize material and optimize methods and processes.
