The Challenge

Dole is the world's largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruit and vegetables. Dole markets a growing line of packaged and frozen foods and is a produce industry leader in nutrition education and research. The Company does business in more than 90 countries and employs, on average, 36,000 full-time, regular employees and 23,000 full-time seasonal or temporary employees, worldwide.

A need existed to inform the entire staff about new safety procedures. Some of the employees are Spanish speakers. In order to save time and money, Dole wanted to have their training workshops for all of the employees at the same time. They needed the Spanish translations of their safety manuals on a rush basis. Some of the training materials were created in PowerPoint. The manager of the Human Resources department also needed assistance in creating PowerPoint slides about the location of    strawberry fields in California for an important meeting.

The Solution

TBD found Spanish translators with expertise in translating machine operation manuals who could translate some of the material directly into PowerPoint and to meet Dole's specific time constraints. We turned to our typesetting experts to recreate and reformat  a complex PowerPoint presentation that had to meet Dole's specific template guidelines.

The Results

The Spanish translation of the safety training materials for Dole's equipment saved them valuable time in training their employees accurately and efficiently. TBD recreated and reformatted a PowerPoint presentation so the client could give an accurate and reliable report for an important meeting to board members. The client was absolutely thankful for the assistance.
