Golf’s Global Tour continues to embrace its international fan base with the launch of a Spanish Language website hosted by Sovee, a premiere provider of next generation translation technology. The LPGA has more than 20 players who speak Spanish from countries including Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Argentina. 

Fans can visit the LPGA’s Spanish Language Web Site via LPGA.com/Espanol

“Golf is a truly borderless game and today’s announcement continues the LPGA’s global momentum with Spanish speaking fans,” said Brian Carroll, LPGA Vice President of Television and Emerging Media. “Our goal with this site is to not only provide better LPGA content in Spanish, but also to better highlight our Spanish-speaking LPGA stars in their homelands.” 

Key LPGA content including news, interview transcripts, player information, blogs and statistics will be dynamically translated from English to Spanish on a daily basis, by Sovee’s advanced Deciphr web tool.

“The women’s game is really growing in Spain and South America,” said 2010 Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year Azahara Munoz, a native of Spain. “All of us have many Spanish speaking followers on Facebook and Twitter, and that’s why we share our thoughts in both languages.” 

Munoz was a member of the 2011 European Solheim Cup Team and became a Rolex First-Time Winner on the LPGA in 2012.

Earlier this season, the LPGA launched the International Crown, a global event featuring teams from eight countries based off the Rolex Rankings. In current standings, Spain would be the fourth country to qualify for the Crown, with Munoz leading the way as Rolex Rankings No. 17. The inaugural tournament will debut July 21-27, 2014 at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Maryland, outside Baltimore.

 “It’s an honor for us to deliver the LPGA website to today’s Spanish-speaking golf enthusiasts,” said Scott Gaskill, president of Sovee. “Our real-time translation capabilities make it possible to keep the Spanish site current on a daily basis”

In addition to LPGA.com/Espanol, the Tour also hosts Chinese, Korean and Japanese websites for Asian fans.
