A note about translations

Google Translate logoSome content on this website has been written or provided by native speakers.  Other sections of the website may use, or require the use, of Google Translate.  We realize the latter may not always produce fully accurate translations, and we apologize for any confusion Google Translate may cause.



This website, and a Google Translate plugin used with this website, requires that we choose one universal/default language.  Our choice is English.  As a result, our website, and our Google Translate plugin, assumes you are reading under an English setting regardless of the language you actually see displayed on a given page.  Clicking on our Google Translate plugin (see below) will NOT provide you the option of translating into English!

….BUT THERE’S GOOD NEWS!  In order for English readers to translate non-English content on this website into English, please simply consider the following:

If you’re viewing in a Google Chrome browser:

    • As soon as a given page is done loading, you should see a pop-up at the top of the screen asking if you’d like to “Translate this page?” Click “Translate.”

  • If Chrome automatically detects the page language and your own chosen language, a pop-up asking you for permission to translate may appear instead.  Simply click on the word “English” to translate the page.  If you’re using Google Chrome in your iPhone or iPad it may appear at the bottom of your screen (as shown in the second image below).

  • If a pop-up window does not automatically occur at the top of you page, simply right click with your mouse on a white part of any page and you’ll be provided with a popup.  Simply choose “Translate to English”

If you’re viewing in a Safari browser:

If you’re running iOS 14 or later, Safari now comes with a translation feature baked into the browser, making it easier than ever to translate a web page.  In iOS 14, the ability to translate a web page’s language to your native language is now a built-in part of Safari.  Here’s how to use built-in language translation in Safari in iOS 14.

Tap the action button on the left side of the address bar while visiting a site that you need to translate. The button looks like two A’s next to each other.  Tap Translate to [Your Device Language].

Tap “Enable Translation” if prompted to do so!

*If you’re on iOS 13 and earlier, you can use Microsoft’s Translator app and its extension to quickly translate web pages that you visit into your native language. Microsoft Translator is a universal app for iPhone and iPad, and can be downloaded from the App Store for FREE.  Once it installed, visit the page of your choice and click on the “Share” icon.  Scroll up until you see “Translator.”  Tap on “Translator.”

If you’re viewing in a Firebox browser:

Firefox does not automatically supply you with translation abilities.  In order to translate a page using this browser, please first install the “To Google Translate” add-on.

After the add-on is installed, visit your chosen page.   Right-click on any white space and simply choose “Translate this page.”

If you’re viewing in Microsoft Edge:

Microsoft Edge also doesn’t have any auto-translate feature, and you have to use browser extensions. Download the Translator for Microsoft Edge from Microsoft Store. This extension lets you translate our webpages in 60 different languages. After you download and install the tool, you will see the icon on the top right corner of your browser. Open the webpage you want to translate and click on the icon, that’s it. You can select your preferred language and set the tool to translate every webpage you visit. If not the entire webpage, you can also select the text you want to translate and use the tool to translate.
