RepresentWomen Launches Spanish Translation of Key Research, integrating essential tools for long-term accessibility
Takoma Park, MD. - June 3, 2021 - Building on the success of their numerous reports in 2020, RepresentWomen is working to ensure its vital research is available for everyone. To accomplish this, RepresentWomen is taking strides to ensure their website and social media content is language accessible.
On their library-Esque website this Monday, the accoladed research hub launched a Spanish micro-version of key research. This is the first of many languages and disability-conscious options to be included as the organization implements new tools for greater accessibility.
The Spanish Translation Microsite features most of RepresentWomen’s fundamental research on the barriers women face and the best practices to reduce those barriers. Translated content includes policy proposals designed to ensure that more women run, win, serve, and lead and research on ranked-choice voting and women’s political representation internationally. Additionally, there is a translated glossary of political terms and take-action pages.
According to Cynthia Richie Terrell, RepresentWomen CEO and Founder: “Our main goal at RepresentWomen is to break down barriers that stop women from participating in politics. Naturally, this includes language barriers that prevent women from accessing pertinent voting information and making connections to organizations like ours.
By evolving our website and creating a more accessible source of information and resources, we are working to ensure that all of us, regardless of English proficiency, can fully engage in our democracy as voters, candidates, and lawmakers.”
RepresentWomen is actively trying to learn more and improve the accessibility of their work. The launch of this microsite is the first step to a more open and available dialogue on their vital research. They are open to suggestions and comments to improve accessibility.
The RepresentWomen Spanish Translation Microsite is officially available at Representwomen.org.
