ABOUT THE INSTANT TRANSLATION
The results of automated translation software are provided “as-is”. Machine translation can never be perfect, layout or structure of documents can sometimes be broken by the translation process. The free usage provides enough insight for users to decide if the platform suits their needs.
The liability of Reverso-Softissimo is in all cases limited to the amount that the user effectively paid for the service concerned. The free hosting of the URL is provided as a bonus. Reverso-Softissimo does not give any guarantee that the hosting will be for more than 90 days after the last payment from the user for that particular job.
Reverso Localize has benefited from the European project Flavius, with various partners including Across, Daedalus, LanguageWeaver, Over-Blog, Qype, TVtrip. We want to thank particularly the European commission and our project officers for their support in this project within FP7 Framework.
We try to offer you the best possible instant translation. Please note that you can always delete and rewrite the translation if you are unhappy with the one we provided. However, the translation credit is non refundable.


FOR USERS WHO TRANSLATE A WEBSITE:
Reverso Localize provides free hosting and indexing. Those features are free of charge, given as a bonus. If the user wants to benefit from these options he has to declare that he is the owner of the content or has obtained the right from the content owners to use and publish the content of the website. He also has to commit not to use Reverso Localize to publish “adult” or porn sites, sites promoting violence, racism or hatred or any site that could be contrary to any law on Internet Content. If a user should translate such a website, Reverso Localize has the authority to delete it without warning. The translation credit that may have been bought and use for this job will be lost and non refundable.
The user expressly agrees that to compensate for the usage of the platform and hosting, Reverso-Softissimo can display advertising on top of the published translated website. The content should not include any link to sites which contain viruses, phishing, or sites promoting hatred, violence, porn, or competing services. Users who don’t comply to this are liable to prosecution.
Many free features are available : editing the translated text, publishing the translated website, ralauching the translation to take into account the improvements you may have done, updating the translated website too always match your original one (for now, acessing to this feature on the plateform is free of charge, and using it costs you as much translation credit as there are words in the website). Since those options are, for now, a bonus offered for free by Reverso Localize, the users can not ask for a refund of the acquired translation credit if they were unhappy with those free features. Purchasing a translation credit gives the clients the possibility to instantly translate their website.
Reverso-Softissimo has not reviewed all of the content made available through the websites to which it links, and that link back to it. As such, Reverso-Softissimo is not responsible for their contents or their use. Reverso-Softissimo disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use of these other websites.
