Rosetta Stone releases six language-teaching program for military and government
- August 18, 2010
Language-learning technology company Rosetta Stone has released six new language editions for government and military customers.
The Arlington-based company released its Enterprise Version 3 software packages in Dari, Pashto, Urdu, Arabic, Swahili and Bahasa Indonesia — languages needed by service members in global security missions.
The programs integrate military content into Rosetta Stone’s language-learning curriculum, which includes speech-recognition tools and self-paced language study. Vocabulary will include terms useful for service members working abroad, including transportation, weapons, directions, buildings, landmarks, basic medical terms and cultural content.
“With these enhancements to our Enterprise government solution, we’re helping [the Armed Forces] and other government organizations deliver their mission to the absolute best of their abilities,” Pete Rumpel, vice president of institutional markets for Rosetta Stone, said in a statement. “Forces deploying to regions where these new languages are spoken have the opportunity to access a critical tool enabling them to better communicate in everyday interactions.”
Rosetta Stone’s programs are used by the U.S. Army, Marines Corps, Australian Defense Forces, U.K. Metropolitan Police Service and the Colombian military.
