The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unveiled its new Spanish-language news page on Septemer 18, 2020, which consolidates the global faith’s 18 Newsrooms from Latin America, thereby providing a unified experience in sharing information with Spanish speakers around the world.
The website — noticias.laiglesiadejesucristo.org — publishes news articles about the Church for the general public (including Latter-day Saints) and is the official Church news source for news media organizations.
In coming days, the page will include a section showcasing news of special interest to Latter-day Saints. The existing country-specific Church Newsroom pages in Spanish will be redirected to the new Spanish-language news page.
“As part of this new website, we have incorporated technology that detects a person’s location upon visiting the website, so the experience they have while navigating the page is local and feels familiar to a Mexican, Peruvian, Dominican, Guatemalan or whichever country they’re connecting from. This means that people will see prioritized content from their country according to the detected location,” said David Parra, of the Church’s Information and Communication Services Department.
Parra explained that upon accessing the site, users will have the ability to select additional country options from a drop-down menu and choose specific location content they wish to experience, which “will give the audience total autonomy to control what they want to see, according to their interests.”
