Important Update

On Tuesday May 18th 2021 at 13:30, access to Transparent Language Online will be transitioning to direct Transparent Language Online access and will no longer be available through RBdigital.

What does this mean for users?

If you are a previous Rbdigital user that had accessed Transparent Language Online through Rbdigital you will need to perform a password reset in order to gain access to your account and your learning history. This is a one-time password reset and when you come back to the Transparent Language Online login page, you will be able to access Transparent Language Online with your username and new password.
