The eBoard language translation feature provides Visitors to an eBoard the ability to instantly translate notes,
iNotes, web links and file attachments to over
30 languages via direct access to the Google Translate service.
To translate an eBoard click on the Translate link on the top right corner of the eBoard and select the language in which you would like to read the eBoard from the list.
Google Translate is an automatic translation service provided by Google Inc. to translate a section of text or whole web pages into another language. Automatic translation is produced by state-of-the-art technology, without the intervention of human translators. Google Translate, like other automatic translation tools, has its limitations. While it can help the reader to understand the general content of a foreign language text, it does not always deliver accurate translations. For more information on Google Translate see their FAQ list.
To turn off the translator and return to your eBoard site, click on the link View Original Web Page in the Google Bar at the top of the page.
The translation option is only available in read mode so it is available for the eBoard visitor to translate the content.
In the Control Panel the board owner can select allow language translator to turn on the Translate button if this feature has been enabled at the Site Administration level for customers that have purchased an academic license. If this option is not available in the Control Panel, contact your Site Administrator.
