Both states are attempting to help uninsured families navigate the new world of the Affordable Care Act.
But KUOW radio reported that on Washington Health Benefit Exchange's website there are fact sheets in eight languages, some using street language or slang while other translations are too rigid.

A Cover Oregon spokesperson says Google Translate is temporary while a website in Spanish and other materials in several languages are produced.
