FAQ’s

What Spanish is used in the CommuniCard™ products?

The Spanish we use is based on what we learned during extensive interviews with Spanish speaking workers who work throughout the United States. Since the majority of these workers are from Mexico, the Spanish used by CommuniCard™ reflects their dialect and word usage. Some of the terms most commonly used to describe work are either the English term or a hybrid “Spanglish” word. An example of an English word adopted by Spanish speaking workers is “drywall” or “sheetrock”, which is used instead of “tabla de yeso”. A commonly used “Spanglish” word is “troca” for “truck” (English), instead of “camion” (Spanish.)

What type of research was done for the CommuniCard™ products?

Over 1000 people were interviewed, including employers and employees. Focus groups were held throughout the USA, including northern and southern California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Georgia. Concepts and illustrations were tested for ease of communication, effectiveness, and cultural sensitivity.
