How to?

Use translate function on website

In the top corner of the website, there is the facility to' select language' to have the website pages translated. This is to help support people of different languages and we feel that it will be a benefit to have this facility on the website.

We are using the Google translate service. We have spoken to a number of diverse community groups that have informed us of potential issues caused by using Google translate.

Some of the victim care providers have been able to check the facility to see if the translations are adequate and in particular whether they cause any offence. The feedback is that translations are not particularly clear in some languages but that the terminology used for certain protected characteristics seems to be reasonable.

We recognise that this might not always be the case and we take any cause of offence, however indirectly caused on our part very seriously.

To that end, we have ensured the following:

  • The translate function will not translate titles or names or organisations.
  • If you highlight translated text , a pop up box will appear in which you can provide an alternative translation. This is sent to Google translate.
  • We would welcome your feedback in relation to translated material. You can do this by

email at OPCC@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk .

You can also fill in a web form at http://devonandcornwall-pcc.gov.uk/getting-in-touch/

You can contact us by telephone on 01392 225555.
