Spanish Translation COVID-19 Style Guide

Spanish Translation Logo

This guide has been created to help with coverage of COVID-19 in Philadelphia. It aims to be a resource to existing and upcoming translation efforts from English to Spanish in this city and surrounding areas. 

It is vital to note that all Spanish-speaking countries have their own linguistic tendencies; there are many common English words and phrases that differ in Spanish depending on where the speaker or writer is from. This guide aims for the most multinational and/or commonly-accepted Spanish possible given these limitations. We acknowledge that the terms in this guide may not feel like the best fit for everyone, but they were each chosen for a reason that keeps us on track to the ultimate goal: provide a translation that will allow the resulting work to be communicated effectively and inclusively with the widest possible Spanish-speaking audience.
