Want to Surf the Web in Spanish? Here's a Guide
 

PR Newswire announced today (http://newsblaze.com/story/2008043011530400003.pnw/newsblaze/HIGHTECH/High-Tech.html) that Finding Dulcinea has launched a Spanish-language version of its Web Guides which includes: "How to Search the Web," "Health," "U.S. Politics," "Immigration," "Cinco de Mayo" and "Survival Guide to New York City." FindingDulcinea (http://www.findingdulcinea.com/home.html ) (Librarian of the Internet) plans to add more Spanish-language Web Guides in the future, based on user feedback.

The AOL Latino 2006 Hispanic Cyberstudy revealed that only 15 percent of U.S. Hispanic Internet users read online content in Spanish only, with most users switching back and forth between English and Spanish.

Finding Dulcinea is a division of Dulcinea Media, Inc. "a Silicon Alley team of savvy Internet users" according to their website (http://www.findingdulcinea.com/info/about-finding-dulcinea.html) . Their mission is to "untangle the Web, freeing it of clutter and spotlighting only the sites that matter."
