Terms of Use

The Google Translate service is a means by which Southern Downs Regional Council offers translations of content and is meant solely for the convenience of non-English speaking users of the website. The translated content is provided directly and dynamically by Google. Southern Downs Regional Council has no direct control over the translated content as it appears using this tool. Therefore, in all contexts, the English content, as directly provided by Southern Downs Regional Council is to be held authoritative.


Southern Downs Regional Council offers translations of its content through Google Translate.  Because Google Translate is an external website, Southern Downs Regional Council does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. Therefore by using Google Translate you may experience unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages. If users are unsure of the meaning of translated content they should consult the original English content.

The Google Translate feature is provided for informational purposes only.  Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect language. Google Translate is a third-party service and site users will be leaving Southern Downs Regional Council to utilise translated content. As such, Southern Downs Regional Council cannot guarantee or claim responsibility for the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service, such as the inability to translate specific files like pdfs and graphics (.jpgs, .gifs, etc.).

Southern Downs Regional Council provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but Southern Downs Regional Council does not directly endorse the website or imply that it is the only solution to users. All site visitors may choose to use similar tools for their translation needs. Any individuals or parties that use Southern Downs Regional Council content in translated form, whether by Google Translate or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk.  Southern Downs Regional Council is not responsible for any damages or issues of translated content not officially sanctioned and approved by Southern Downs Regional Council.
