Automatic language translation

We offer automatic language translation of our website content. Automatic translations are quick and convenient, but may not be accurate. Use them as a guide only.

To use the automatic translator, select a language from the ‘Change language’ menu on our website pages.

We may choose to keep sections of content in English if we are unsure the translation will be accurate. So on some pages the translation tool may be completely hidden or allow only English to be selected.

Note: Automatic language translation is not available for Internet Explorer browsers.
