UK-based Magna Colours, a manufacturer of water-based inks, announces the expansion of its training program for non-English speaking screen printers with new translations of its MagnaAcademy courses.
The company now offers Spanish versions of its video tutorials with plans to add Russian and Turkish translations in the coming months.
“Having only launched MagnaAcademy at the beginning of the year, it’s been very well received, and feedback from existing users has been positive and helpful,” says Helen Parry, managing director of Magna Colours. “It’s important to us that the Academy is useful and provides the information that printers need and want, so we’re really listening to the feedback we receive and will continue to adapt the resources accordingly.”
Parry adds that with the new non-English tutorials, the company aims to reach screen printers in countries like Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, Russia and Turkey, all regions which house major industry hubs.
“We wanted to translate our modules so they’re more accessible for all screen-printers while challenging industry-wide misconceptions and showing just what water-based inks can achieve,” says Parry.
The new translations come as Magna Colours continues to build its educational content and offerings. In early June, the company added two new modules to its MagnaAcademy courses on discharge printing and soft-base printing onto light garments.
