Coforma Designs Multilingual together.gov Website for Family Reunification Task Force
WASHINGTON, Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) selected Coforma, via a partnership with digital services company TechFlow, to provide user experience (UX) design, content strategy, translation, and front-end development for the together.gov website that enables the Family Reunification Task Force (Task Force), created through an Executive Order by President Biden in February 2021, to register families separated by the U.S. government at the U.S.-Mexico border between January 20, 2017 and January 20, 2021.
Coforma, an agency that crafts creative solutions and technology products for the communities served by its government and commercial partners, began their work on visual design, user experience design, translation, content strategy, and development on July 23. Over the course of the engagement, Coforma worked closely with DHS, the Task Force, TechFlow, and Eighty2degrees Design Studio to develop a prototype for the website and registration form. Coforma also provided translated content and designed the display of audio listening options in Spanish, Portuguese, K’iche, and M’am languages. The website and form were tested iteratively with Task Force members as well as with multilingual stakeholders with direct experience with family separation.
“The Trump administration’s Zero Tolerance policy was one of the reasons I left the government and founded Coforma (previously named &Partners). One of our first projects was focused on helping document family units being separated at the US-Mexico border during the previous administration so that one day they could be reunited; that day is now. The work to repair this travesty is far from done. It’s an honor to support President Biden’s Task Force and the creation of together.gov in this milestone moment towards making things right,” said Eduardo Ortiz, CEO of Coforma.
