Automatic Translation ChoicesIn order to better reach our non English speaking members, we have added an automatic translation service to ctif.org. The service is powered by Google Translate and works best with larger languages.

Currently, we have 30 languages, which represent the languages among our national membership base.

Please note that Automatic Translations do not translate attached files, like PDFs or Word-documents. 

Automatic translations are never perfect, but day by day, they are getting better and better. Often it is possible still understand the general meaning, even if some words or expressions get translated wrong.

A small group has tested the service in the larger languages like French, German and Spanish, and we have found it to be fairly accurate in most cases.

The service seems to work less accurate in smaller languages like Swedish, Norwegian,  Slovenian, etc. However, for a non English speaker, we can hope it will be better than nothing and will contribute to spreading information about CTIF and knowledge about Fire & Rescue where CTIF.org currently does not have readers.

It is still needing to be determined how well the service is working in Russian and large languages other than the ones mentioned.

If you or someone in your organization has input, please don´t hesitate to contact the CTIF Communications Group, the President, or the CTIF Ljubljana Office.

The President also wants to inform all users of CTIF that the web page - and the translation feature - works well on mobiles / cell phones and tablets.

The site is a modern "responsive web page" and doesn´t require clicking on a mobile version, but adapts automatically to the size of the users screen.

Therefor, it can also adapt to the kinds of smaller, portable lap top screens users may be using in the field.

You can try this on your computer screen as well, by simply making your browser window smaller or larger.
