WESTERLY, RI- Washington Trust today announced that it recently introduced a Spanish version of the Bank’s website to enhance the online experience for the Hispanic / Latino community by providing information in the language of their choice. The Bank partnered with two local Pawtucket, Rhode Island-based companies, Envision Technology Advisors, a leader in providing people-first technology solutions, and Be Moore Interpreting, a Rhode Island-certified minority and women-owned enterprise which provides interpreting and translating services, to ensure website content was proficiently and efficiently translated into Spanish.

“Washington Trust is committed to inclusivity and ensuring all community members have access to the financial tools and information that will help them on their journey to economic empowerment,” said Edward O. “Ned” Handy III, Washington Trust Chairman and CEO. “While we’ve had Spanish materials and advertising for years, the Spanish version of our website ensures members of the Hispanic/ Latino community can more easily engage with us online.”

"Envision is committed to providing equitable access to information and resources to support all community members, said Susie Cabral, Director of Digital Innovation and Design, Envision Technology Advisors. “Launching a language translation tool in the market, beginning with Washington Trust, helps us further that mission while providing a secure, scalable and flexible tool for translating entire websites and mobile applications."

“Our partnership with Washington Trust has been marked by a shared vision of inclusivity and access,” said Shirley X. Moore, Founder, Be Moore Interpreting. “Their proactive approach to integrating language justice into their services demonstrates a profound respect for the diverse communities they serve.”
