Outreach translates into award for Arroyo Seco neighborhood council: The Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council was commended for its outreach to non-English speaking residents and stakeholders, in part by using a Google translation tool at the top of its website.

The translation tool and a survey asking residents how to spend $25,000 in public funds were cited by the city’s Department of Neighborhood Empowerment as examples of “best practices” among the city’s 89 neighborhood councils, according to an announcement issued by the Arroyo Seco NC. The translation tool, located at the top of the neighborhood council’s main web pages, can translate the English-language site into more than 50 languages, including Persian, Chinese and Yiddish as viewed below.
