Numero Uno - Comite para las Colinas Verdes

That's the "Committee for Green Foothills" in Spanish, and now (thanks to our webmaster Kathy Switky's work) almost all of the information on CGF's website can be automatically translated into Spanish with a single click of the mouse. From our front page, a Spanish reader just clicks on the button labelled in Spanish on the left hand side of the page and almost everything from then on is translated. Some English remains where the words are saved as images instead of text, but the vast majority gets translated. My Spanish is a little rusty, but my reading of the translation is that it gets the point across, which is the whole point of communicating. A quick review of other area environmental group websites indicates that CGF is the first - numero uno! - to do this in our area (Sierra Club does have a translation for national level activities). One more step in environmental outreach!
