As the novel coronavirus shut down businesses in Jackson Hole in March 2020, the Jackson Hole Daily worked to provide timely, accurate, critical public health information to help the community navigate a global pandemic.
As articles multiplied in English, Latino residents contacted this newspaper to raise concerns about what they saw as a lack of the same vital information available in Spanish — everything from when, where and how to get tested to what health orders meant for individuals and businesses.
“Local translators, Pati Rocha and Lina Collado, stepped forward to tirelessly and generously translate articles chosen to give readers information on how to slow the spread of the virus and protect themselves and their families,” Managing Editor Rebecca Huntington said. “We could not have done this without their dedication and meticulous work.”
The articles, regularly published three days a week, have attracted some faithful readers, who recognize the contributions of Rocha and Collado, Huntington said. Now the Daily, and sister publication the News&Guide, are expanding translations online.
“The response has been great and as a result we will transition from periodic, translated stories to offering complete translation of all local news at JHNewsAndGuide.com using Google Translate,” Publisher Kevin Olson said.
Readers will be able to read local news in Spanish on their desktop computers and mobile devices in both the Jackson Hole Daily and Jackson Hole News&Guide by purchasing an annual digital subscription to the Jackson Hole News&Guide. The cost to subscribe is $60 payable by credit card, and the subscription renews automatically each year.
