Pluralsight Enhances User Support with New Closed Captions and Full-Course Transcripts in More than 50 Languages

Pluralsight, a global leader in hardcore developer training on-demand, today announced that subscribers everywhere now have the ability to enjoy select courses from its more than 200 title library with closed caption display and full course transcript in English using an HTML 5 player. As an added benefit, Pluralsight’s new transcript feature allows subscribers to translate courses into more 50 languages, expanding its reach to even more software developers around the world.

Just as English evolved into the international language of business, coding is transitioning into a language all businesses need to be fluent to remain competitive and ahead of the curve. By making its courses available with transcripts in more than 50 languages and with closed caption functions, Pluralsight reinforces its commitment to making coding and its courses globally accessible so that businesses can stay ahead of the curve in this technology-driven market. Online training provides employees and businesses alike with an opportunity to have access to industry experts at any time while being able to work at their own pace.

“The increasing international demand for Pluralsight courses and software development drives our ongoing efforts to develop new content, functions and user engagement that cater to our varied, global subscriber base,” said Aaron Skonnard, president and CEO of Pluralsight. “New functions like closed captions and transcripts are just examples of how we continue to challenge our authors and team to find ways to improve our customer’s user experience and make coding accessible to more people, no matter how they learn or what language they speak.”

To access the new functions, Pluralsight subscribers are directed to a new “transcript” tab on the tool bar and a “CC” icon next to some of its most popular course, signifying that a course is available with closed captions and full transcript. With convenience always in mind, Pluralsight subscribers select a language preference upon first use, which is then stored within a user profile with closed captions and transcripts appearing in the user’s preferred language for each subsequent use. For non-English transcripts, Pluralsight uses the Google Translate service and users are able to switch languages at any time.

“We have received positive feedback from our users and business partners, expressing the importance of subtitles in multiple languages,” said Skonnard. “We hope that this will help companies enhance their employee training programs and will encourage job seekers, entrepreneurs and employees around the world to diversify and strengthen their skill sets, which has become crucial as more people telecommute, work remotely or are required to perform new job functions outside of their current knowledge base.”

Over 20% of Pluralsight courses are now available with the new transcript and closed caption functions. The team plans to expand its transcript library and is committed to transcribing any new courses that come out based on subscriber priority and demand as well as updating select older courses with closed captions and transcripts.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start.

It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
