Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Assistive Technology

Assistive technology is any tool that enables students to access school life and to perform tasks as independently as possible. We believe that all students, not just those with special needs, can benefit from the use of assistive technology.  Teachers use these tools to create differentiated learning environments that are flexible, inclusive and engaging (Universal Design for Learning).

The TDSB has a wide-range of assistive software options that are available to all students.  Please speak with your child’s teacher to learn more.

Special Equipment Amount (SEA)

SEA refers to software, hardware and other equipment used to accommodate students where the need for specific equipment is deemed essential by a qualified professional.

For more information, please read: Assistive Technology Tools Research Monograph #50.
