Google Translate Disclaimer

It is a free and third-party service provided by Google that translates text into different languages. These translations are performed by a machine and may not always be perfect. However, we hope this option increases your accessibility to multi-language healthcare information that you should discuss with your medical provider.

How It Works

Using a technique called “statistical machine translations,” Google Translate identifies patterns in millions of documents that were translated by humans. Then, this tool makes intelligent guesses to present the text in the requested language. To view the translated information, you may need to install the appropriate language pack to your website browser.

Limitations and Disclaimer

Google Translate uses technology to perform translations. Those translations may be imprecise and inaccurate in whole or part. Doctors Community Health System and our affiliates do not make any promises, assurances or guarantees regarding the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of Google Translate services. Additionally, we are not responsible or liable for Google Translate services. You should have an experienced human English translator provide precise and accurate translations. 

The English text on our website is the sole authoritative and official version. Please refer to the English version of our website’s content if you have any concerns regarding the accuracy of Google Translate services. 

By using Google Translate, you understand and agree to this disclaimer.
