Healthcare in Translation: CuidadodeSalud.gov
Thursday, January 16, 2014
Is poor translation under-serving Spanish-language speakers and recent immigrants? Dr. Jane Delgado, Ph.D., M.S., President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health says that the controversy over poor translation is masking bigger concerns about the lack of features on the site. At the moment, CuidadoDeSalud.gov doesn't have a feature to shop for different plans in the same way the English site does. Delgado also says a big challenge is finding ways to best represent the "language of healthcare" to non-English speakers.
