Mirroring problems with the federal health care website, users attempting to navigate the Spanish version have discovered their own set of difficulties.

The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. It had busted links. And the translations are so clunky that critics say they must have been computer-generated.

The issues underscore the halting efforts across the nation to get Spanish-speakers enrolled in coverage under the federal health care law. Critics say that as a result of various problems, including those related to the website, many people whom the law was designed to help have been left out of the first wave of coverage.

Federal officials say they have been working to make the site better and plan further improvements soon.
