Skip to comments.More embarrassment for Obamacare as new website for Hispanics is written in 'Spanglish'

President Obama's signature healthcare program is set to face fresh ridicule after it emerged that the vital Spanish version of the website is filled with embarrassing grammatical errors.
Not only was the portal, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, set live two months late, but critics have also pointed out that the site reads like 'Spanglish' - with some claiming its is so clunky it must have been generated on Google Translate.
And, to make matters worse, just like the original English version which was disastrously launched two months ago - the Spanish version is filled with glitches and does not provide a seamless web experience for its users.
Health care specialist, Adiran Madriz said that the site is not written in recognized Spanish - potentially leading to enormous problems for the 53 million people of Hispanic origin in the United States, accounting for 17 per cent of the population.
'When you get into the details of the plans, it's not all written in Spanish. It's written in Spanglish, so we end up having to translate it for them,' said Madriz of the applicants.

What did you expect from ObamaDontCare?
But hey, half of the Hispanics who go to the website couldn’t read it in English. Many couldn’t read it in Spanish. So screwing up in Spanglish might be a somewhat workable solution. NOT!
Senor Obama, this don't make no sense.
They will still support Bozo.
Translation is an art, not something you can do mechanically. For example a Japanese machine translation, “Youth hung for delinquency” resulted from “Student suspended for misbehavior.” Also a technical translation reading repeatedly “water goat”, when hydrolic ram was meant.
Jackasses. I mean it. REAL jackasses!! Enough of this crowd in DC!!
Just more proof that they are not even trying to adhere to legitimate standard.
The 0bama administration has responded that it will “feex thee wheb sight monyawna or by thee sinko de mayo wheechever comes firsto.”
Yo Caro Taco Bell
I want to know who pocketed the 650 MILLION DOLLARS!....INDICT, INDICT, INDICT!!!
You can safely bet that the payment portal hasn’t been developed. We will be funding free health care for half of Mexico.
“I want to know who pocketed the 650 MILLION DOLLARS!”
I would suspect that the ‘total’ running cost is over a billion at this point. Especially since it is not completed. Then add the Insurers bail out....
Is there an Ebonics website?
This is NOT the result of incompetence, as no one is THAT incompetent. It is just more evidence that ObamaCare is intended to succeed by failure, ushering the next phase of “single payor” government-run health care. This rigged, actuarily unsound system will first force private insurers to bankruptcy, and trigger massive government bailouts as provided in the ACA law. Once health insurance is out of the way, Big Brother will “benevolently” step in to take over health care itself. Planned from the start...
Choo ken poot that on yore Eee Bee Tee card, Seenyore.
0bama Spanish is like Austrian. Didn't exist before but it's official now!
But let's call it 0banglish.
Yes! that’s the odd and stoopid thing: “oh, don’t mind the totally off Spanish website, we were just using official unrecognized Spanish.” I’m sure my hs Spanish teacher — who deducted a half point for misplaced accent marks — would have accepted that explanation.
obama’s minions: ever downward.
He's such a putrid little weasel.
I thought Caliph Baraq was fluent in Bahasa Indonesia and Swahili?
I think you mean Bamboozala Imsoneedy and Swindleasy.
