Note: Content, images, and acronyms in the Localized Libraries are modified to reflect the language, laws, and regulations of the country in which the courses will be used.
There are four localized libraries:
- Covid & Protek for Hospitality use (Latin American Spanish (es-419))
- Are not equivalent to the North American courses
- They are not children of similar courses that are available in the Alchemy Library
- Have their own parents
- Parent names for the localized courses include the two-letter country code in parenthesis. Example HACCP: Overview (BR) is the course that has been localized for Brazil.
- Have their own course codes
- Are available ONLY in the language that is the most prevalent for each country
- For example, the Brazil build has courses in Brazilian Portuguese. There is no English equivalent.
- The language must be enabled in Manager / Player
What’s the difference between localized translated and translated localized courses?
Translated courses only reflect a direct translation of the course language, with no changes to the acronyms or images used. Localized courses reflect the language, laws, and regulations of the particular country in which that course is being taken, including local acronyms and visuals. While the original courses were built for a North American audience, localized Alchemy courses reflect the different regulatory standards of that particular country.
How does this affect Learning Plans?
Adding a localized course to an existing Learning Plan will require the learner to take both the current Alchemy course and the localized course to satisfy the LP.
If learners need to take only the localized course, existing Learning Plans will need to be modified to replace the existing course with the localized course or new Learning Plans should be created and old ones archived.
