You can translate our website using a number of free web translation tools from providers such as Google Translation, Altavista's Babelfish and FreeTranslation.Com. These will provide automatic machine translations of text found on a web page and can be useful in understanding information for people whose first language is not English. It helps to write short sentences. The longer, and more complex the sentence, equates to more mistakes in the translation

PLEASE NOTE: These automatic computer translations are by no means perfect, and will inevitably contain a number of errors. As such they should be used as a rough guide only.

* These languages use different character sets than the defaults installed on your computer. If you have trouble reading pages translated into these languages then Windows users can install the relevant fonts on their browser by clicking View > Encoding > More - in Internet Explorer, or View > Character Coding > More in Netscape. This may then prompt you to install the fonts from your Windows or Mac installation CDs, or to download the files from a website. You may also need to restart your computer for the installation of the fonts to take effect.
