Transparent Language Online Wins Third Modern Library Award Posted by on Jan 29, 2018 in Language Learning, Language News, libraries

It’s a threepeat! Transparent Language Online received its third Platinum Award in LibraryWork’s 2018 Modern Library Awards (MLAs).

The MLAs were established to recognize the top products in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Submitted products were sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience with these products in their organizations were permitted to judge the products. Each judge scored the product from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, and beyond.

Awards are then given on the following scores:

6.5 – 7.4 – Silver Award
7.5 – 8.4 – Gold Award
8.5 -10.0 – Platinum Award

For the third year in a row, Transparent Language Online has gone platinum in the Modern Library Awards!

Lauren and Chuck receiving our 2017 MLA award at ALAMW last year. We hope to meet many of you at this year’s conference in Denver!

We are humbled to receive such high markings for Transparent Language Online. It is our pleasure to work with public and academic libraries throughout the English-speaking world. We believe that all libraries should offer online language learning opportunities to their community, and already partner with hundreds of libraries to achieve that goal.

We also believe libraries know what their diverse, curious communities need. That’s why we carefully collect and implement library feedback into the platform; in 2017, at the request of library customers, we added new languages (including Hmong) and better mobile compatibility for on-the-go learners. This award acknowledges the success of that collaborative relationship with our libraries.

In the MLA judging, one Iowa librarian highlighted the Survival Spanish for Librarians course included in every subscription, as well as the onboarding process: “We are very impressed by this product. Libraries are so excited that it is offered statewide here in Iowa and look forward to offering it their patrons. We love the Survival Spanish for Librarians feature and the ease of setting up an account and getting started with the training.”

To our existing library friends, we owe you a heartfelt thank you. To future library friends, we look forward to meeting you and helping bring more than 100 languages to your community with Transparent Language Online for Libraries.
