Event Details

LCW is celebrating compliance week with two complimentary interactive mini-workshops that will help you better plan your international compliance and ethics initiatives--Working With Translations and Beyond Translation: Contextualization.  

Compliance Week Service Spotlight: Contextualization 

You've translated your communications, your policies, presentations, and your eLearning; but is translation enough to ensure that the content resonates with your global and local audiences? Join us to explore the steps you can take to make your compliance and ethics messaging and training more effective.  


  • HR Certified Credit ProviderDefine contextualization and identify the three types of contextualization
  • Learn how to contextualization & practice your cultural auditing skills 
  • Explore contextualization as it relates to the four components of instructional design
  • See how these concepts were applied to a recently contextualized compliance program
  • Walk away with helpful tips and questions for considering the effectiveness of your content and messaging

"I truly didn't know what I didn't know. I will think differently about how I approach our communications now. Thank you!"

Who Should Participate? This session is ideal for anyone involved in planning, managing, developing, or editing communications, policies, presentations, training/eLearning, internal communication, and marketing - both general and specific to compliance and ethics.

Session Level? Beginner to Intermediate. This session will be useful for those who have not yet started contextualizing their content. It will also be helpful for those who have started contextualizing and would like to know how to better connect with deeper cultural trends. 

Session Confidentiality? This virtual mini-workshop will be recorded and archived for future broadcast. Please note that participant names or organizations will not be shared by hosts during the session. However, participants may choose to disclose their personal or organizational identity during the session, either verbally or via one of the onscreen chat discussions.
