INN’s Amplify News Project has launched a pilot initiative to improve the amount and quality of content available to Spanish-speakers in Chicago and to extend the audiences for INN members. It also provides for translation of some content from Spanish to English.
The Better Government Association, Block Club Chicago, Chalkbeat Chicago, The Chicago Reporter and La Raza will be contributing content for translation. Distribution partners include Univision and Telemundo. All interested news organizations can publish the translated content, with appropriate credit to the originating newsroom.
The initiative, which will run from mid-August to mid-November, is supported by a grant from the Field Foundation of Illinois, with additional support from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
