Translation Services

AltaVista Translator
Go.com Translator

You can get your site automatically translated into another language, but be careful--since the translation is done by a computer, the syntax, wording, and meaning can be very different (even comical at times) than what it should be.

If you decide to use these translation services, we suggest you go back and edit the translation once it has been processed.
