    Google Translate

    The Joshua ISD website can be translated into different languages to serve our diverse communities. It is important to understand that the website uses Google™ Translate, a third-party service that provides automated computer translations of web pages. JISD has no control over the service provided by Google™ Translate and we do not endorse the accuracy or reliability of the translation.

    While Google™ Translate uses state-of-the-art technology, it does so without the intervention of human translators. The translations provided as part of the services are only an approximation of the website's original content.

    You should not rely on Google™ Translate to provide an exact translation of the website. NOT all text may be translated correctly and some portions of the website may not be translated at all. Some files and other items cannot be translated, including but not limited to, video content, graphical buttons, drop-down menus, graphics, and photos. In addition, some applications and/or services may not work as expected when translated.

    JISD has no control over the nature, content, and availability of the service, and accordingly, cannot guarantee the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of the translation. Neither the members of the Joshua Independent School District or its Board of Trustees, accept liability for any inaccuracies or errors in the translation or liability for any loss, damage, or other problem, including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage arising from or in connection with use of the Google™ Translate Service.

    For questions about Google Translate, including how to contribute to better translations, visit Google Translate Support.
