Starting today, December 8th, 2017, the official Spanish-language version of the Centro Espírita Beneficente União do Vegetal site and its blog will be launched. This date was chosen in honor of Núcleo Immaculada Concepción (Madrid-Spain), which is celebrating its ninth birthday today. This was the first UDV nucleo established in Europe and it also where the Authorized Distribution of Vegetal of Valencia (Spain) originated.
The content in Spanish can be accessed by clicking on the Spanish flag located on the homepage of the site or by clicking on specific areas in the UDV website. All of the institutional content of the UDV site has been translated into Spanish and many of the principal articles of the UDV blog as well, which is an integral part of the site.
The creation of the Spanish version of the UDV site forms part of the modernization process that the communication channels within the UDV have undergone. It began on July 22nd, 2015 when the redesigned Portuguese language site was launched. After that on April 19th, 2016, the English language version was launched.
Until a short time ago, the team of translators was coordinated by Counselor Gloria Taniguchi (in memoriam), who was associated at the Authorized Distribution of Vegetal of Cusco (Peru). The Department of Memory and Communication (DMC) of the General Directorate of the Center expresses great gratitude to her and to the entire team of volunteers who translated the content into Spanish.
