Inkling Enhances Global Capabilities with Authoring Tools for Right-to-Left Languages, including Arabic and Hebrew
First Digital Operational Learning Platform to Support Approximately 30 Languages
Jul 08, 2021
SAN FRANCISCO — July 8, 2021 — Inkling, a global leader in digital learning solutions, today announced that it has enhanced its platform to serve enterprise customers in every region of the world with the addition of support for right-to-left (RTL) languages, such as Arabic and Hebrew. With this new authoring and distribution capability, Inkling is the first and only digital operational learning platform to offer RTL support, including in its native mobile apps, bringing capabilities to create content to approximately 30 languages across the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
“As we grow, we want to ensure that our multinational customers can leverage Inkling to drive more effective training and operational learning in every corner of the world,” said Former Inkling CEO Jeff Carr. “The addition of Arabic and Hebrew language support and the flexibility of Inkling’s user interface streamlines content creation to ensure that our global customers can deliver consistent experiences regardless of location.”
Even when people are highly proficient in English, 65% prefer to read content in their native language. With the new language capabilities, Inkling enables global companies to author content and create interactive, digital Inkdocs with the RTL reader in mind. Templates for RTL content can be created, and pattern titles changed and translated into Arabic or Hebrew, even while a native English speaker works from an interface that remains optimized for a left-to-right user.
Inkling also makes it easier to distribute and search Inkdocs through a Library interface that is designed for RTL readers. Text, folder icons, headers, filter placement, and menu options are positioned to accommodate RTL navigation. Traditional left-to-right functionality in Inkling is available in RTL to ensure users do not miss out on the full features of Inkling.
Inkling’s RTL user interface and authoring of Arabic and Hebrew content are available now. Inkling RTL tools are now being used by McDonald’s, RBI, and other Inkling customers around the world.
RTL language support is currently being added to Inkling Learning Pathways and the Inkling Assessment Widget and will be available for these components soon.
