Transforming the Economics of Language Capability for Government Purposes
United States Government (USG) organizations need better language capabilities to address military, diplomatic, commercial, medical, and similar professional requirements. Transparent Language works with the expert USG language community to create better ways to blend innovative technology with human instruction, allowing our customers to transform the economics, logistics, reliability, and visibility of rigorous language learning and sustainment programs.

The CL-150 Platform's broad and deep language-specialized technology changes what's possible for language learners, instructors, program administrators, curriculum developers and content creators:
Content authoring: Instructors and curriculum designers can author high-impact, technology-delivered courseware for one lesson, course, or an entire curriculum.
Reporting capabilities: Track and comprehensively report on progress at every level for maximum visibility.
Mobile and web applications: Efficiently assign, access, and complete courseware on multiple devices and platforms.
Sharable content: If desired, courseware can be shared with other USG, CL-150-enabled personnel and programs. Re-use. Re-purpose. Build on top.
CL-150 cohort language sustainment: Instead of proficiency falloff after training, weekly CL-150 Cohort Lessons can deliver steady proficiency improvement in the field and on the job. A typical CL-150 Cohort Lesson is about two hours of pedagogically valuable work in your language, at your level, based on current, authentic, professionally-relevant content. Perfect for large globally dispersed communities, such as SOF, FAOs, Linguists, and Advisors. Learn more about CL-150 Cohorts
