Someone on Google Translate has the phrase in question “translating” into the neologism “healthcare”.

0bama and KS will probably have to spend another $600 million or whatever the # is now, to have a usable translation.

For all their talk of diversity and how every document has to be available in Spanish,
they could not find someone literate in Spanish to do the translation.
They waste millions of dollars and still do it on the cheap.
They might as well have hired that South African sign language interpreter. Maybe they did.

Soon we’ll be told to diagnose ourselves and phone it in.

“...Federal officials say they have been working to make the site better and plan further improvements soon. Also, administrators say they welcome feedback and try to fix typos or other errors quickly.”

What’s funny is the Korean above the “Renovate Your Body Newly” is pronounced Wuh king sen tuh. I read it quickly as Walking Center. It’s been too long since I’ve had any interaction with Korean, but it doesn’t appear to be actual Korean, rather like Korean spelling of English words. Below it, in all Korean is Tae Han Min Kuk, which is Korean for Korea, then again Walking then four syllables that appear to spell out the English word “Science” in Korean. Sah ee un s.

They do have a lot of transliterations, sometimes they are kind of funny.

Here, to try an explain how incomprehensible Spanglish can be, are the charming Hispanic girl group Las Ketchup, singing The Ketchup Song, in Spanglish.

At least they look comely while doing so.

The name of the site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, can be litterally read as “for the caution of health.”

For the caution of health, do not try to sign up!

(And "litterally"?)
