Why Professional Publishing Services are Better Than Self-Publishing

You have written your first book and want to get it published. The first question that starts hovering in your mind is whether you should approach a professional publisher to get it published or self-publish it. Since, this is your first literary work and you would want your work to reach a larger audience, you can approach a publisher who might have years of experience in the publishing field and would know how to market your book very well.
This is opposed to self-publishing where you are responsible for everything, from the title of the book to getting it published and marketed. Since you are relatively new to this field, you might not have the required skill to promote and market your work.
Here are a couple of advantages when you approach a professional publishing service to publish your work.

You get paid for your book

Since you would be selling your work to a publisher, a royalty will be paid to you by them for every copy of your book that gets sold. Whenever you are signing a contract with a publisher, you would also receive an advance on such royalties.

Design and editing

When you collaborate with a professional publisher, you can avail expert services such as proofreading, designing and editing.  Thus, the content of your book would get improved so that your final product is error free and looks great.

2 Criteria for Outsourcing Training

It is understandable that for many companies, outsourcing the training function can be quite a critical decision. So it is important to consider some vital criteria before they outsource the company’s training function.
Here are a couple of criteria based on which a company should outsource their training delivery to a reputed training consultant.


It is important to find out how suitable a training consultant is before letting them deliver their services. Do they have the required expertise, experience and knowledge to handle training for your business scope? Can they customize their training modules and delivery processes based on your unique requirements and demands? These are some of the important questions to ask before outsourcing your company’s training to a service provider.

In-depth research

Training outsourcing is not a small decision to be made and thus your should take it seriously. An in-depth research on the existing training market should be carried out before making a decision on who you should work with. Markets have become much more open now-a-days and customer reviews, feedbacks and comparison websites are easily available. Just ensure that you have collated and compared enough data about the potential training consultants before you select one to handover your training delivery. Such research would help you to find the best consultant for your company’s training needs.

2 Questions to Ask Before Selecting a Copywriting

Selecting a service is choosing what value you want to gain from it. You would definitely want to procure a service that not only satisfies your requirements but also fits your budget. Your brand and business need development all the time. So it is time that you take the help of an expert and not an amateur to whom a crucial job needs to be handed over for proper execution. Copywriting is a skill, as well as, a form of art. Today, you would find that the market is full of agencies and copywriters. But what is unfortunate is that a bulk of these businesses and freelancers may not deliver you quality copies.  So how do you make sure that you select a great copywriting service provider for your business?

Here is a couple of questions that you should cover before selecting a copywriting service provider for your business.

1. How much does the copywriting service provider know about your industry? 

It is vital to ascertain whether your potential provider has the required aptitude for understanding and writing according to the genre of a particular industry or not.

2. How would the service provider describe the voice of your brand?

You are aware of the sound of your business i.e. you brand would definitely have a specific voice. You should make sure that a prospective service provider recognizes your business’s voice and has the desired ability for projecting it.

Four Criteria For Choosing a Good Translation Service Provider

A good language translation service provider is one who is usually on the same wavelength with their clients, appreciate their exact requirements and can feel all of them. This is because every business may have its own individual approach. Perhaps that is the reason why you should select a provider based on certain vital criteria that should be a must-have for respected and reputed translation service providing companies.

1.       Focus on quality

How does your prospective provide choose their translators? Are they ready to revise the document, if necessary even after the delivery? Do they possess any external quality accreditations?

2.       Clients

This is definitely a good indicator. If the prospective provider has worked with reputed brands, both national as well as international ones, it is a great sign that the agency has been tested robustly by such corporate for their varied translation services.

3.       Past track record

Since the translation industry has almost nil barriers for entry, any operator can join this industry. You must make sure to select a translation service provider that has a track record of at least a few years so that it deserves your trust.

4.       Specialization

There are some translation services that need high-specialization. Examples of these are medical and legal translation services. These specialized translation services need translators who are well-versed in specific fields. If a translation is not accurate, your business can even be held liable. So that makes specialization an important criterion for selecting a good service provider.

Two Practices for Facilitating a Good Virtual Meeting

The participants in a virtual meeting make use of audio and video capture software so that they can communicate with each other over a network.  A virtual meeting thus makes it possible for its users to participate in meetings with peers and colleagues from all across the globe. It also eliminates the time that would have been otherwise wasted on traveling to the designated venues for physical meetings. It is important to note that it is a tough task to facilitate well for a successful virtual meeting. In fact proper facilitation is tougher than being a host for such a meeting. A facilitator has to make sure that there are no technical hiccups so that the virtual meeting goes on smoothly.

1.     Making sure that there is no technical problems
Virtual meeting is a networked application and can be complex. Moreover, there can be technical issues at times. While one can do little to get rid of such technical issues completely from the participants’ side, occurrences of a key failure from the facilitator’s side can be reduced by ensuring the presence of skilled technical support manpower as a standby. It is a good practice to have a proper technical backup strategy ready for a virtual meeting if the virtual meeting software does not seem to work.

2.     Number of participants
You can have a smooth and effective virtual meeting hen the number of participants is about 10 or fewer than that number. This is because when the number of participants is very high, the equipment used for hosting may face strain. Moreover, there are chances of many people speaking simultaneously in such a virtual meeting.

How to Choose a Good Training Consultant for Your Business

Before you decide to select an external training consultant for your business, it is imperative that you have a basic idea about what type of training requirements are necessary for the development of your manpower. Check out some of the traits that a good training consultant has that will make your life easier.

Analysis of training need

A good training consultant should have the ability to make a thorough analysis of your domain specific training requirements and thereafter identify the training program that is essential to produce your desired business result.

Continuous improvement of training delivery

It is quite crucial for good training consultants to be familiar with their skill sets and expertise. Moreover, only possessing knowledge is not adequate to produce the desired results. In order to be in sync with the changing business scenarios and improving their training effectiveness, a good training consultant would continuously strive towards improving the training delivery skills.

Tailored training programs

A good training consultant is one who just does not deliver an off-the-shelf training program for the clients. Rather such a consultant would develop tailor-made training programs based on distinct client requirements for greater effectiveness.  A business would enjoy increase in ROI from the training if a training program is tailored by a consultant to take care of your unique training needs.

Sustainability is not enough

Since several years Globibo targets to be not only a sustainable organization but to provide a genuine contribution in regards to the impact it has on the community. The basic principle was always explained by a simple example: Cleaning up the mess that you created with a BBQ in a park, doesn’t make you a good person. If you clean up the entire park you are.

The word sustainability itself suggests “maintaining” the situation as is. Also in most organization the term is used to “offset” the dirt produced or to have a “neutral” impact on the environment. We feel that this is not good enough.

Several initiatives that had been implemented over the years have been consolidated now in the SustainaBuild program. That means if we destroy a tree for paper, we will plant 2000 back. That means if we use Electricity, we will create new, entirely clean electricity sources back in a ratio of 1 : 2000.

The same principle is applied in everything we do, everything we touch; it includes supplier selection, talent development and all internal operations of the organization around the world. With that Globibo doesn’t only provide a clean balance sheet, but truly contributes to a positive footprint.

2 Merits of Independent Publishing Services

Today, independent publishers have become invaluable resources for budding and lesser-known writers all over the world. Many authors prefer to hire the services of an independent publisher to get their literary works published. Here are two of the key reasons why the demand for independent publishing services is increasing by leaps and bounds.

1.     Retaining the rights of your work
As an author, all your rights are solely reserved by you. Thus, it gives you an excellent chance to gain access to traditional publishers who give preferences to the more popular authors for publishing their works. When you use the independent publishing services, you continue to enjoy all the distribution and publishing rights for your work that might have been restricted by many of the traditional publishers as a part of their agreement. Authors are at a liberty to sell film and foreign rights for their literary work if such an opportunity comes before them.

2.     More easily available in the market
If you are hiring the services of an independent publisher, your manuscript is available readily and more easily in the market as soon as you complete signing off on the ultimate digital proof. It hardly takes a time period between 4 to 6 weeks for your work to be available through various channels of distribution when you want to use the services of different publishers.

2 Scenarios Where You Must Hire Professional Copywriting Services

While it makes sense to do copywriting all by yourself, sometimes it may be a good idea to hire the services of professional copywriters. Here are two of those reasons why you could benefit by hiring a professional copywriter:

1.     You may not be able to write attractive content
It may not be an easy task to put your efforts in something you are not very comfortable with. There may be also times that when there is urgency in getting the copywriting done at the earliest but you do not have adequate time in your hand to complete it yourself. There are many people who are not fond of writing - in fact, it can be a real phobia for them. So you should only do what you are usually good at doing. If writing is not one of your core skills, it is always a good idea to ensure that this part of your business function is getting the required attention.

2.     The stakes are too high to take risks
Imagine a scenario where there is a vital marketing campaign or a big product launch ahead; you have to ensure that your content leaves a great and lasting impression on the target audience. A professional copywriter is a perfectionist as far as the use of appropriate language is concerned. He or she is passionate about structure of the copy, the tone to be used, and the finer aspects of language usage and grammar.

2 Benefits of Event Management Support

Wondering whether to outsource event technology services or not? It is a question that may keep bothering you often, especially if you are in charge of  organizing events, conferences, meetings or tradeshows. The event industry and event technology has been changing significantly in the last 10 years. Many organizations as well as government agencies feel the need to reassess their event strategies in the light of shrinking budgets and other business constraints. These limitations have made many to turn towards outsourcing their event management and technology requirements. It is a profitable option too, and here is why:

The right Event Technology partner saves time

It can be time-consuming and stressful to plan an event. It is particularly true when the team size is small and the members are already overburdened. Outsourcing event technology services will allow you to delegate duties like online registration, access control, event marketing, logistics and onsite AV to the experts who know their job best while you and your staff can concentrate on more important tasks like the content curation and event benefit realization.

Domain-specific experience

One of the key benefits of outsourcing event technology is that you are guided by experts who are well-experienced at managing events and meetings of various types on a routine basis. You also benefit from the latest and best event technology. This allows to save significant amount of budget and avoid technical installation risks.

Two Reasons To Outsource Corporate Training

No matter which sector your organization belongs to, outsourcing corporate training is an excellent option for improving your business. From healthcare to the automobile sector, it can be quite tough to find both time as well as resources for providing quality training to your existing or new employees. It helps to outsource your corporate training function as it is one of the cost-effective solutions that can give a real boost to your teams.

Minimizes risk

Outsourcing corporate training eliminates the risks of committing grave mistakes as a result of lack of information or improper training. It can also bring down the risk of all such employees failing to meet their job expectations even after getting training.

Effective training      

It is particularly true for start-up or small businesses, as outsourcing corporate training is helpful for them to balance cost and high-quality content. They may not have adequately qualified or confident staff members willing to lead a team or they may be incapable of providing the infrastructure for conducting high-quality trainings. Many businesses do not include training as one of their core functions so it is understandable if such companies do not have the correct teaching resources. On the other hand, all such firms that exclusively plan, manage and deliver corporate training modules have the required training resources and expertise, from which you benefit.

Popular Trends in Corporate Training: Gamification

Learning is a joy for some, but misery for most, especially those who have completed their many years of study and reached a job. Training is, however important and one of the best ways in which you can keep your staff up to date, engaged, and ready for change.

Making training fun: Gamification

·       The first step to any training is the return on investment. ROI, in this case will be how much the company on the whole and the participants, in particular gain from it. They are, for the most part intangible, but should help with the overall output and performance.

·       The next step is to make sure that the game is not just about the game. Having fun is second priority, the most important thing, is to impart skills and update knowledge. So the participants should be thorough with the content, the game, points, and prizes come second.
·       Make sure that the game based sessions actually have positive outputs. At the end of the year, your dashboards will have to show results, this can be because of the game or other teamwork related effects that it has had.

Are you looking for ways in which you can make learning fun in your corporate? Gamification might just be the answer.


Being Culturally Sensitive When Localizing Language

Translation is the process of changing the language of a text, be it in the form of a book or a transcribed speech, or even a website. Translation is often done word to word, and effort is put into carrying forward the massage as clearly as possible between languages. The advantage with this process is that the message will be carried over with accuracy. There are a number of ways in which this can work out well for a business, from simple meetings to closing deals.

Language localization on the other hand is a whole different game. It is a much longer process, but the nuances, and other details regarding the language will be taken into consideration. The importance of localization is important simply because words mean different things between languages and direct translations can send out the wrong message in the best case and can be completely offensive in the worst.

If between two languages there can be quite a bit of confusion, dialects present a whole new challenge. Words and phrases have to be taken care of, preferably a resident of the region can be used in the process. Another reason why you should never use a ready made software or just throw text into google translate and hope for the best.

Can Virtual Reality change my training program?

Globibo Corporate Training has elevated the industry with its GALTA training as well as blended learning approach. In collaboration with the Event technology and Research & Development division the team has now taken a look into how Virtual Reality can impact the traditional training strategy. Virtual Reality provides an immersive environment in which the learner can navigate in a real-life environment without being exposed to the concrete physical objects and dangers. Furthermore it can create artificial but responsive environments which help the learner to practice hard and / or soft skills.

  • Case Study 1 : An engineer can dive into the different vehicle engines to understand the working and components as well as how to resolve technical issues.
  • Case Study 2 : A fire-safety team can rehearse emergency procedures on a drilling rig
  • Case Study 3 : A leadership team can practice public speaking in front of very large, potentially rather unfriendly audiences.

Virtual reality has its limitations and is in its infancy, but the integration of eLearning and practice-oriented learning appears to create a very interesting mix for specific training objectives.

To learn more about VR based learning, please contact your Globibo Training Account Manager.

Why Interpreters Are Important for International Business Meetings?

Strong communication paves the way for successful business transactions. Whether communication is with the employee, potential business associate, client or fellow colleagues, communication transforms ideas into action. The crux of every act of communication is to project ideas through the medium of speech or written communication for improvement or understanding of practices and policies. If the business set up is limited to the home ground and the staff is from the same geographical location, the necessity for an interpreter is moot. When the language of communication is the same, importance is given to idea portrayal rather than the language of idea exchange.

Complications set in when staff from other nationalities are recruited in an effort to expand the business. Growth is essential for sustainability. Growth within a given physical space is limited and to keep pace venturing into or exploring new markets becomes necessary. New markets in different countries are targeted. When new business relationships blossom, the company gains an ally and a company representative in foreign soil. To set a strong foothold in new markets, the company must get acquainted with local traditions and community psych. Business deals will only be successful provided there is a coherent conversation between the parties. Language barrier in such cases will be the perfect setting for a lost in translation debacle. To avoid these embarrassing situations, the presence of an interpreter becomes crucial. An interpreter holds the key to business ventures across the sea and will help with understanding the foreign market operations and tactics.

An interpreter holds an important role as the mediator of communication between the two companies. If a business deal has to go through, the terms and conditions of a business transaction or a possible collaboration must be understood by both parties to erase any ambiguity. Most collaborations fail when dispute regarding the terms crop up. These disputes are deep rooted in misunderstood expectations one collaborator has with the other.

To ensure a successful business meeting with clients overseas, the presence of an interpreter becomes indispensable. The interpreter will work for the companies participating in the meeting providing translations of what each says. A competent interpreter will participate in the information exchange using his/ her words while retaining the essence of the conversation. When looking for an interpreter it is advised to look for one who has technical knowledge in business skills apart from strong hold over the local and foreign language.

Current Corporate Training Trends

In the world of outsourcing and blurring geographical barriers, effective communication is slipping because of language barriers. Business giants are venturing into virgin markets to seek new fortune and expand their empire. Being the civilized generation that we are, wars are won by conversations and company take-over is through making deals that can’t be refused. The weapon of choice is language. The demand of language training among corporates has reached a record high. With the current stand of improved education standards and technical proficient, the lack of something as important as ineffective communication is baffling.

To address this issue, most corporate companies pump in a lot of profits into employee’s language training. The extent of sales, satisfactory customer service, overall business growth and development is fuelled by proficient language skills.

Current trends in the field of corporate language training are:

  • Improving English skills: English still remains the language of business transaction. Regardless of the market expanse into non English speaking countries, the language still holds dominance over the market as most written communication is still in English. English also the chosen mode of learning of new technologies and practices. English also opens the channels of communication between employees of the same company who are separated by geographical boundaries. There are also instances when the floor manager speaks in English and the workers speak in Malay, Mandarin or Hindi. The efficiency falls due to communication gap affecting the process of manufacturing. Deadlines are not met as a result. 

  • Training on different platforms: with the rise in the number of work from home instances or the dependence on internet and smart phones, many employees seek different platform apart from face to face learning. Training time is shifted to accommodate increasing work commitments and deadlines. Most companies demand  mobile training provision that they can use when they are on a flight or commuting to and from work or in an environment which is disconnected. The option of face-to-face training in language skill is also retained for the employees who choose improvement in conversation skills through practical demonstrations. The trending practice in corporate language training is the implementation of virtual classrooms that are more flexible and engaging than the physical approach.
  • Learning new language skills: while English skills are still important, learning new languages help in better collaborations and stronger networks. The relationship between the customer and customer service provider also improves when the dialogue is in the native’s tongue.

Why Foreign Language Skills Training Is Vital for the Indian KPO Sector

The Indian KPO sector is up against the wall. With competitive pricing on local shores, and a push for bringing business back to home countries, governments around the world are putting in place legislations that will discourage outsourcing and off-shoring. Indian KPOs will need to look beyond traditional English speaking countries for their business growth. And that’s where foreign language skills training comes into play.

With a young workforce of skilled white collar teams, KPOs have a wealth of brainpower at their disposal. Yet, sans cultural sensitization and foreign language skills, the best laid plans can go awry. So what are the areas of the business that a KPO will need upskill with language training?

Your first line or sales force and senior leadership will need to lead by example. Whether it is learning Bahasa Indonesia or Korean to service the emerging markets in that geography, or honing abilities in French, German or Spanish, KPOs will need to align their language and cultural training to their growth strategy.

If teams can make that connect and show an understanding of local culture, prospects are more likely to warm up to the idea of off-shoring. If there arises a need to set up a team at the client country/location tomorrow, you are already equipped with the language skills to deal with a local workforce and to navigate local laws.

If operations teams and servicing teams can upskill it will eliminate the need for hiring interpreters and translators - something that often results in delays, longer cycle times, and increased chances of errors. Having an ops team and researchers who understand the client’s language can also be a big selling point to win more business. Employees too will see this as an opportunity to learn. All in all, it is a win-win that more KPOs would do well to consider. 

Why Language Training for Servicing the China Market from Hong Kong Is Critical

Hong Kong based sales and client management teams for multinational corporations are often tasked with managing operations and driving sales on the mainland as well. And getting the right language training can be crucial to their success.

Mark Zuckerberg made headlines last year when he impressed with his Mandarin on a trip to Beijing. While not everyone may have such a pressing need to learn Mandarin, being able to comfortably converse with prospective clients and business partners on the mainland could give you an edge.

Effective communication is the foundation of a productive working relationship. It minimizes ambiguity, and the right cultural training combined with language skills workshops can equip executives with the arsenal to manage the toughest client. It can inject positivity and help two people connect on a personal level, which could swing deals in your favor.

It also has another oft overlooked benefit of helping move things along quicker. Simply put, you can have a more efficient and effective sales and service team if less time is spent in interpreting and translating emails, documentation and other communication. Certain business nuances are easy to miss by translators not familiar with your line of business. If, on the other hand, your own employees and team are well versed with Mandarin and Cantonese, they will be able to handle things themselves and take the right decisions and respond promptly to client queries, keeping them happy. And happy clients are always good for business.

Hong Kong's English Language Crisis and the Need for Language Courses/Training

If recent articles coming out of Hong Kong are to be believed, the city may be less of a bilingual metropolis than we imagine. Some contend that since the handover 1997, China has been subtly undermining the use of English.

Government’s lack of interest in driving use of English

While the official stance is that English continues to be one of the primary languages of communication in business and administration, reality seems to be quite different. The Hong Kong SAR government for all purposes has made Cantonese their primary medium of communication. The only exception to this rule is for the rare press conference when English is used to address the media and the Information Services websites and a smattering of others teams that offer translations. Almost all interaction with the public is in Cantonese. There is certainly nothing wrong with that - until you realize that English still features on paper, as one of the main languages.

The challenge of this dichotomy and the need for language training

Having English on the board while not actively working at it means that a lot potentially slips between the cracks. Misinterpretation is rife as businesses and society are ill equipped to translate and interpret some finer elements of Cantonese. This summons up the need for sound language training and courses so that administration and spokesperson are able to release announcements in both English and Cantonese. This needs to cut across the all arms of society. Equally, businesses employing expats must necessarily equip them with the language skills and courses in Cantonese to ensure they understand not just the language but the cultural nuances that go with it.

Difference between Language Localization and Translation for Your Website

Language localization and translation are sometimes inadvertently used interchangeably, though there is a world of difference between the two. Here’s what you should know before you decide to go down either route for your website.

Translation focuses on the subject

With a good translation job on your website, you are assured of the ability of non-English speakers being able to read your website. For instance, a website in Singapore might have their website available for readers in Tamil, Malay and Mandarin. The same content is translated to perfection and put up for visitors to access.

Language Localization takes it beyond

Language localization takes into account more than just the language in which a reader will see the content and contextualizes it. For instance, a certain website might make available their content in English as well as Mandarin. If the firm employs a language localization service to get the job done, they will probably be advised to make changes to the content and the way it is presented, and perhaps even the layout of the website/page itself.

It goes beyond translating the words accurately from English into Mandarin. It factors in the user, their local context, culture and how they are used to viewing websites, their association and affiliation with certain colors, layouts etc. It is about interpretation and understanding and not just the reading of a statement on the website.

2 Merits of Choosing a Good Translation Service

Though the two terms translation and interpretation are often used interchangeably, they are not synonymous at all. While translation refers to transferring the meaning between two different languages in a written form, interpretation does the same thing in a spoken form.

A translator gets time and has access to useful resources such as glossaries and dictionaries so that he or she can produce an accurate, true and faithful verbal artifact or document. A verbal artifact is produced for recorded text. If you are looking for effective translation services for your business requirements, here are two merits offered by a good translation service provider.

·       Such a provider should make it mandatory that all translation services are provided by only native speaking translators who have all the relevant technical experience in this field and the required experience to meet the requirements of the audience.

·       A service provider should provide translations services that are recognized world-wide from several chambers, embassies, government agencies and embassies. It supports all types of file formats and any language combination.

Globibo translation services will offer you all these benefits and much more. Contact us for more details on how our translate services can meet your business needs.

Critical Success Factors for a Good Virtual Meeting

A virtual meeting can be regarded as either a series of events or a single event, where the participants collaborate from various geographical locations. A virtual meeting can be conducted on a “real time” basis, which means that all the participants of such a meeting may joinig in at the same time, through either video conference or teleconference. On the other hand, a virtual meeting can even possess asynchronous components, where the participants may work at different time zones or schedules.

Top 3 Advantages of Virtual Meetings

Meetings can often take quite a large portion of your workday, especially if they will be held offsite. You have to take time out to schedule your work for other priorities, make arrangements for traveling and also plan for a space that can accommodate all the participants. This might divert your attention from other important commitments that you have been handling. Virtual meetings can solve many of the hassles which are discussed in this article.

  1. Travel: The biggest advantage of a virtual meeting is that employees do not have to travel. Instead of it, virtual meeting software can be used along with a microphone and a webcam.
  2. Space restrictions: Every company does not have a meeting room spacious enough to accommodate all the attendees. For instance, if your company is planning for a seminar, instead of renting a space for around 100 people, it is better to invite all the attendees to a virtual meeting.
  3. Increases productivity: Arranging for travel and other associated tasks to attend a meeting may reduce productivity. Virtual meetings can be attended sitting at your workstations.

Today, Globibo is a name to reckon with as a leading provider of virtual meeting solutions in UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, Berlin and many other nations, enabling participants to conduct meetings in varied environments without going through traveling hassles or any type of technical challenges.
