Lighthouse adds new Spanish-language website translation

Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center announces the addition of a Spanish language translation to our website.

While the United States has no official language, there is a sizable population of Spanish-speakers across the country, small towns as well as large cities. According to Pew Research Center, Florida has more than 5.7 million Latinos, the third-highest total in the country. Lighthouse provides services annually to more than 500 individuals affected by vision loss; of which nine percent are Spanish language speakers.

The new Spanish language translation of Lighthouse’s website aims to engage with a larger audience and respond to consumer demand for information in Spanish.

“Since Florida has a large population of Spanish language speakers, including individuals where Spanish is their first language, it is important for Lighthouse to be all inclusive,” said Lighthouse CEO, Lisa J. Howard, CFRE. “With the addition of the Spanish translation to our website, we are able to provide our essential information in Spanish which will connect us with the Hispanic community in our service area and beyond on a greater scale.”
