News Release
Newly expanded Oregon Department of Human Services Spanish website launched January 23 - 02/08/24

(Salem) – The Oregon Department of Human services has expanded the content and resources available on its Spanish website. As of Jan. 23, people visiting the Spanish website can now access an additional 65 transcreated pages for a total of 110 pages. Transcreated means the content on these pages was translated by a native Spanish speaker instead of Google translate, as most websites offer for language translation. 

Here are some highlights on the Spanish website:

  • People can access this Spanish website by selecting “Sitio en Español” on the top right side of the main website’s banner or by typing servicioshumanos.oregon.gov on their browser.
  • This expansion includes a more robust navigation and search bar allowing people to find what they need faster.
  • People can navigate easily from Spanish to English versions of the transcreated pages by clicking the "Español" or “English” button under the header of the pages.
  • People that speak other languages can use the "Languages" button on the upper right of the ODHS website to get a google translated version of the ODHS website in 10 different languages.

Additionally, people are now able to use the Office Finder feature on the Spanish site, making it easier not only to find local offices, but also important information like specific services and messages on office closures.

These additional pages provide Spanish speaking communities seeking services and resources, as well as staff and partners that support them, with virtually the same level of information that is currently available on the ODHS main website.
