Excitingly, the Verona Press newspaper has brought on nearly a dozen Verona Area High School students to assist with translating articles for the Spanish version of the Verona Press, called Corre la Voz. And the program is catching attention (click here for Madison365 article). 

This was the first year for the project as the Verona Press did a "teaser" edition in May and then started the monthly editions with their September issue. This past year, students worked alongside Google’s online translation services, then made copy edits to adjust translations as needed. Moving forward, the students will be doing full translation to Spanish from the English version to enhance their language skills as well!

The students meet every Thursday for an hour, and often work outside of that meeting to complete the article translations. Excitingly, the students can also use this experience toward the Wisconsin Seal of Biliteracy, a program that acknowledges graduating seniors who have met outlined criteria, demonstrating bilingualism, biliteracy, and multicultural competence in two or more languages (English and a partner language.) This Verona Press Corre la Voz project is one of multiple pathways for students to achieve the Seal of Biliteracy upon graduation!
