About Anthology

Blackboard, Campus Labs, Campus Management, and iModules came together to form Anthology and create a comprehensive ecosystem of EdTech solutions to serve institutions and learners around the globe. Anthology is a community of former educators and education enthusiasts inspired by the possibilities of data and driven by a passion for making the lives of learners, educators, and leaders better.  

Anthology focuses on creating experiences that are more informed and personalized to support learning, teaching, and leading more effectively. And we do this through our combined product and solution offerings that span the full learning journey.

Senior Globalization Program Manager, Nestor Solano, walked us through Anthology’s localization setup.



Just one expert manages localization into 42 languages for 150 million words per year!


The external LSP partner works closely with the internal team, and hosts a dedicated team of experts that work exclusively on Anthology content.


Machine translation is relied upon for certain content types, but not used at all for others.


Anthology is embracing the localization of rare and indigenous languages as part of its mission to truly make education accessible to everyone.
