A key issue in the development of employment in Europe has been the creation of free movement of labour. Migration is now part of a wider global concern that has seen a dramatic redistribution of resources in terms of equality of access and the very structure of work itself. One of the main solutions for this change is adaptive technology which consequently enhances learner involvement in the learning process and develops autonomous access to learning material. This solution has created a great demand for digital content and digital writers.Parallel to this macro-economic context is the growing impact of the emerging digital world and the contours of employment it is shaping. This new and emerging digital world has created a range of new professions and skillsets which are literally and figuratively unprecedented. Among other issues, these two problems have also put a renewed light on the importance of multilingualism and development of skills and competences in learning materials’ design and promotion of policies and technologies that enhance the acquisition, practice and development of additional languages for mobile workforces. The key purpose of this investigation is to raise the question of how to train experienced writers from the world of print, so that they can adapt and learn how to become digital content writers. The issue is how we solve these problems and begin to train an entirely new generation of digital writers in the shortest and most effective way possible. This requires thought on how we create vast amounts of quality content in a rapid way as well as how we deal with different language conversions and localization of digital content.
