Terri Shaw, translator
Spanish translation:Artículo de fondo
Explanation:
Tracked this term down through Termium (and thedicc. Larousse español/francés.). My husband, who has taught "newsparerese" and newspaper writing in Spanish, confirms that this is the right term for those "human interest" articles that newspapers run on (as opposed to in depth, special articles on hard news, which would be something like "crónica especial" or "artículo especial")

reportaje


Explanation:
A "reportaje" is an article usually with a lot of photographs and fluff. This word is commonly used on both sides of the pond. On the other hand, "Artículo especial" doesn't really say anything to the Spanish reader.

Explanation:
Coincido con esta traducción. El término "reportaje" se utiliza para entrevistas, que no parece ser el caso en la sección Estilos.

reportaje


Explanation:
Definitivamente no es solamente sobre un artículo escrito que se base en la opinión del redactor sino más bien un artículo imparcial que incluye citas y al que lo respalda una investigación a fondo.
