November 2006Vol. 7, No. 8Spanish Child Welfare Terms
Child Welfare Information Gateway now offers a list of more than 130 Spanish/English child welfare terms on its website. The list was developed with the assistance of professional translators and bilingual child welfare professionals from many different regions. Wherever possible, a preferred term as well as several acceptable options are offered. Consistent with priorities set forth by the Children’s Bureau, a special effort was made to select or create family-positive, strength-based terms.
