Use of translation tools

The UNCCD Knowledge Hub offers translations of the content through Google Translate.  Because Google Translate is an external website, the UNCCD secretariat does not control the quality or accuracy of translated 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 UNCCD Knowledge Hub to utilize translated content. As such, the UNCCD secretariat cannot guarantee or claim responsibility for the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service,  Users should consult the original English content on the UNCCD Knowledge Hub  if there are any questions about the translated content. 

The UNCCD Knowledge Hub provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but the UNCCD secretariat 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 content in translated form, whether by Google Translate or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk.
