PULLMAN In what may be the first among U.S. public colleges, Washington State University has rolled out a fully translated student financial services website in Spanish.
“In our research of university financial aid websites, we didn’t find any that had been completely translated. As far as we know, we are the first in the country to do this,” said Brian Dixon, WSU assistant vice president of student financial services.
More than 40 million native Spanish speakers live in the United States, and another 11.6 million people are bilingual — many of whom are children of Spanish-speaking immigrants, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
