Slack thread link

  • The Marketing and Polyglots teams were invited to add their input on Training Team discussion recently, regarding the name “Social Learning Spaces”. The suggestion is that “Learn Together” would be easier to translate and avoids the connotations that come with “social”.
    • The idea of social learning makes sense and is solid. But from a branding perspective, it culturally may not be the best term.
    • What cultural implications do we have, especially beyond English-native areas. For those where English is 2nd language, what is a more clear English phrase? See the Slack thread.
    • @webcommsat shared information from previous discussions before launch. See the Slack thread.
    • @lidialab @tobifjellner @rmartinezduque @piermario reverse translated what “social media” or “social network” would be going from their native languages over to English.
    • @nalininonstopnewsuk highlighted the need to have easy abbreviations, as SLS can be hard to understand for non-native speakers.
