Google Translate Feature

NHS Wales websites, which have the Google Translate Feature enabled, offer translations performed by Google™ Translate, a third party service that NHS Wales has no control over. Translated pages are not part of the hosted website, nor have any link to the NHS Wales domain.

This service is an automated computer translation and, as such, will not be a perfect translation and will be prone to mistakes that a human speaker would not otherwise make.

The translation should be used as a rough guide only. NHS Wales in no way accepts liability for the accuracy of these translations or any loss incurred as a result of them. 


Future Amendments

Subsequent changes to these terms will be made available on this website.
