We have been working on a way to clearly, but un-intrusively, provide access to our client's online Spanish content. The "En Español" button or hyperlink is simply boring (and it disenfranchises a percentage of the site's visitors), the Flag - be it from Spain or Mexico - even though helpful, to a certain degree leaves out people from other nationalities/heritages.
So in this new world where Social Media is pervasive, we found a way to "stand in giant's shoulders" and take advantage of the ever-present icons leading people to a company's social media pages: Sneaking in between the facebooks and twitters of the world a little icon with a simple "ñ" - enie. If in doubt of what it means, whenever someone hovers over it, a little text message appears which reads "En Español". Click and estarás en el contenido en español del sitio web.
Yes, the "ñ" is not exclusively used in Spanish but it has become a symbol that universally represents it.
