Pages on this site are being translated by "Google Translate" without the intervention of human translators. SamTrans is using this automatic translator because it is the most affordable and practical way to offer translated pages in multiple languages of all the site's HTML pages. Automatic translation also eliminates delays in having text manually translated. With automatic translation, new or revised text is translated immediately upon request.
Automatic translation does have limitations. The software sometimes produces awkward
translations. However, our research has determined that the translation quality is sufficient
for customers to get the general content of the page.
