Job Purpose

About The Strategic Solutions Group (SSG)

The Strategic Solutions Group, part of RWS’s Language Services division, works closely with major accounts and clients of all sizes who are going global with specialized localization services. These services cover the entire localization spectrum, from translating content, media, and audio to creating engaging eLearning programs and transcribing highly impactful marketing campaigns. The SSG works closely with RWS’s Language eXperience Delivery (LXD) platform, which includes 2,000 in-house linguists, and a network of more than 29,000 translators, who use RWS’s proprietary machine translation, AI, and translation productivity tools, to deliver a 24/7 service to clients.

Our Global eLearning Practice helps training teams in global companies who want to ensure successful training outcomes amongst their workforce and customers by avoiding the disadvantages of the traditional “eLearning and localization as separate activities” approach, and by simplifying the vendor ecosystem through a single, expert solution provider with a comprehensive integrated solution.
