dominKnow Adds Multi-Lingual Capability to Better Service E-Learning Needs of Globally Diverse Customers Using Its Learning Content Management System (LCMS)

Eight Languages Now Supported via New Language Module License Add-On to dominKnow LCMS

TORONTO--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - CSTD Conference -- Responding to the needs of globally diverse customers, dominKnow Inc. announces today that the dominKnow LCMS 5.1 Web-based Learning Content Management System now offers a Language Module that allows customers to provide e-learning in almost any language. dominKnow is presenting the new Language Module at CSTD 2007 -- the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Training and Development -- in Toronto, at booth # 611.

At launch, the Language Module gives dominKnow LCMS customers the ability to present courses and courseware interfaces in French Canadian, French European, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Korean. Additional languages will be added to the module in the coming months.

The new Language Module also gives customers a Translation Tool to extract the text assets of a course on their own and have them translated into any language they choose. Additionally, customers can substitute same-language interface words to match organizational terminology -- for example, "Student" could be changed to "Learner" throughout the system if "Learner" is more appropriate.

"With the pressures of globalization and increased competition, more organizations realize the value of cost-effectively reaching all possible learners in the languages of their choice," says Chris Van Wingerden, Vice President of dominKnow Inc. "With the Application Program Interface (API) we announced earlier this year, dominKnow LCMS is a fully flexible and adaptable tool of choice for any organizational e-learning need."

dominKnow LCMS 5.1 allows e-learning courseware to be developed in the most efficient way possible -- from setting learning objectives, content authoring and gathering, instructional design, and multimedia creation, through to the final deployment and administration of a course. dominKnow customers in industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, and health care claim dollar-cost efficiencies of 80% or more compared to traditional classroom learning.

dominKnow LCMS 5.1 customers can export training content compatible with both SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004. dominKnow LCMS also supports the AICC standard.
