OMRI Announces Launch of Bilingual Website
(September 4, 2019) OMRI, the Organic Materials Review Institute, is pleased to announce the launch of their fully bilingual English/Spanish website at OMRI.org. In recent years, OMRI has been working to make its services more accessible to its growing Spanish-speaking audience.
“OMRI has made considerable investments in supporting Spanish-speaking stakeholders,” says Executive Director/CEO Peggy Miars. “In the past two years, we’ve added eight new bilingual staff members to our team, and nearly 20 percent of our staff are fluent in Spanish. We’ve observed a mounting interest from prospective applicants in Central and South America in particular, and it’s a top organizational priority to provide effective resources and customer service to meet these demands. This is an exciting time to be a part of the organic community. We’re glimpsing the future of organics, and that future is global.”
At OMRI.org, visitors can browse website content in both English and Spanish. Website users can toggle between English and Spanish on the fly with a click of a single language-switcher button at the top of every webpage. Additionally, suppliers, applicants and subscribers can now set language preferences that will allow users to receive certain email correspondence from OMRI in Spanish. Miars continues, “OMRI has always worked to support this audience with regard to email and phone assistance, and now we are taking our online tools to the next level.”
While English continues to be the primary language for communication at OMRI, as well as the language used to conduct product reviews, the OMRI website now provides a wealth of information in Spanish for the organic community. The organization is also expanding services to allow OMRI Listed® suppliers to complete online renewals in Spanish, and has introduced additional services in Spanish for subscribing certifiers.
You can browse all of OMRI’s Spanish-language website features at OMRI.org/es.
