Need to share an animation with a multilingual audience? No worries! Animations can easily be translated into whatever language you need, so you can customize your video to your unique audience.
Easy to swap in culturally relevant images
If you think certain images will resonate with certain communities, it’s easy to swap images into an animation to make sure your message is as relevant as possible. For example, clothing and food can look very different across cultures. By swapping in appropriate images, your audience will be able to easily connect with the content of the video.
Animations are a flexible option if you need to communicate to people across cultures, because it’s so easy to customize the images and the narration to exactly who you are talking to. Plus, the visual nature of a whiteboard means they are something everyone can understand.
