Google Translate Disclaimer

The Oregon Association of County Engineers & Surveyors (OACES) offers translations of the content through Google Translate. Because Google Translate is an external website, The OACES does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. All OACES content is filtered through Google Translate which may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images, and the general appearance on translated pages. Google Translate may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by the OACES and are not associated with OACES’ privacy and use policies. Users should consult the original English content on the OACES if there are any questions about the translated content.

The OACES uses Google Translate to provide language translations of its content. Google Translate is a free, automated service that relies on data and technology to provide its translations. The Google Translate feature is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect or inappropriate language. Google Translate is a third-party service and site users will be leaving the OACES site to utilize translated content. As such, the OACES 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 (e.g. .jpgs, .gifs, etc.).

The OACES provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but the OACES 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 the OACES content in translated form, whether by Google Translate or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk. The OACES is not responsible for any damages or issues of translated content not officially sanctioned and approved by the agency.
