Things to note

For schools accessing their es2 websites inside the Schools Broadband network:
You may find that Google Translate is blocked. It is NOT BLOCKED for visitors accessing your site from outside of the Schools Broadband network. If you wish, you can contact the EiS Kent Service Desk, 0300 065 8888, to ask for the block to be lifted.

Google Translate may slow down your site under some circumstances, i.e., large blocks of text may take time to be translated.

Google Translate is a service provided and maintained exclusively by Google. EiS Kent will not accept responsibility under any circumstances for the accuracy of any translation or the provsion or availability of the Google Translate service beyond the provision of the es2 'Plug-in' 'Content translation' utility.
