Hasselt, Belgium | May 19, 2014 - Thalento®, a leading SaaS provider of e-Assessment & Talent Management solutions and ElaN Languages, an established B2B language services agency, announced a business partnership today to address the growing market demand for the integration of language tests into the wide range of online Thalento® e-Assessment solutions.

he partnership between Thalento® and ElaN Languages includes the choice of Thalento® as the exclusive distributor of the ElaN Languages Tests and the seamless  integration into the Thalento® e-Assessment & Talent Management Cloud.

Combination of soft and hard skill testing

Identifying talents and matching people & functions is essential to the success of every company. Thalento® provides clear and tailored answers to the ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions of People and their Talents, through a combination of soft skills e-Assessments (personality, capability, motivation, etc.) and hard skills tests (reasoning, accuracy, function-specific skills, etc.) .

Ben Greeven (CEO Thalento®): “We already had an extensive portfolio of cognitive, ability & skills tests but we were missing language tests in our offering. It was clear from the beginning that ElaN Languages would the ideal partner for us; our experience with languages as a core Thalento competence and our extensive market experience with language providers only confirmed that.

Besides the fact that ElaN Languages has acquired the European EN 15038 quality standard for translation services, it also has an extensive global network of more than 2.000 experienced translators worldwide.

As a result, ElaN Languages is perfectly placed to support our Thalento® partners and distributors around the world, which is essential for us.”

Our language tests are an important measure in any recruitment and selection process. Our online language tests provide an accurate insight into the candidate's language competence and proficiency. Combined with the other Thalento® e-Assessments, it gives a complete profile, including not only the performance, motivation and skills of a candidate, but their language level as well.”
