About the Translation and Multilingual Desktop Publishing Project
Globalization Partners International (GPI) provided translation and multilingual desktop publishing services in Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili (Kiswahili)- Tanzania, Swahili (Kiswahili)-Kenya and Zulu (isiZulu) for a variety of andBeyond human resources training materials and policies, as well as destination itineraries and descriptions generated from a propriety web content management system.
GPI worked closely with both andBeyond’s human resource and training department and their web publishing and reservation teams to translate HR policies and publish web-based camp descriptions and guest itineraries.

“GPI’s domain expertise in both training and human resources subject matters coupled with their ability to work in challenging languages such as Swahili and Zulu led to successful translations of our key training materials,” said Linda King, andBeyond’s Group Human Resources & Training Director. “GPI had a very innovative, documented and comprehensive localization and quality assurance process which was required on such important content for our employee training programs throughout Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa.”
