For those students and parents for whom English is not their native language, Google Translate is a great online service for translating web pages from one language to another. We include a Translate link on our websites to facilitate use of the service.

Unfortunately, the way Google Translate recreates a webpage in a different language also makes it a security threat on campus that could be used to bypass the web filter required by the federal Child Internet Protection Act. So Google Translate is blocked for students when they are on campus. 

However, students on campus can still use the Babylon Software translation service, which allows them to copy and paste text for translations:

We continue to encourage students and parents to use Google Translate when off campus.
