PANDEMIC FLU WEBSITE AVAILABLE IN SPANISH

MOTIONPOINT HELPS U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MAKE PANDEMIC FLU WEBSITE AVAILABLE IN SPANISH

 

Federal Government Provides Important Health Information for

Growing U.S. Hispanic Population

 

COCONUT CREEK, FL (March 13, 2007)  – MotionPoint Corporation, a software and services provider dedicated exclusively to making websites available in any language, announced today that all of the content and functionality of the Federal Government's Pandemic and Avian Flu Website is now available in Spanish.  

 

The Website is a gateway to all federal information on avian influenza (bird flu), including the H5N1 virus of concern, and pandemic influenza planning and response, including outbreak monitoring outbreak, travel precautions, and vaccine and antiviral medication research and development. 

 

The Spanish-language Website is at http://espanol.pandemicflu.gov and is also accessible via the "en español" link on the homepage of www.pandemicflu.gov. 

 

Both English and Spanish versions of the Website are managed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the government's principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services.

 

The Spanish-language version of www.pandemicflu.gov was launched using TransMotion® technology provided by MotionPoint Corporation.   HHS simply maintains its English-language site; MotionPoint maintains the Spanish version, which is automatically updated to reflect any changes or additions to the English site.  With MotionPoint's technology, there is no need for HHS to build, maintain, or integrate parallel sites.  In addition, no client IT resources are needed.

 

"We're very excited to help HHS distribute its critical information and service to thousands of citizens," said Will Fleming, president and CEO of MotionPoint Corporation.  "Our unique solution enables this important agency to deliver cost-effective government services online, and launch fully-translated sites quickly and affordably.  HHS is demonstrating how inclusive, forward-thinking e-government both increases service availability and reduces cost."
