Noel Park net is built on a Ning platform and maintained by volunteer residents, neither of which have the capability to translate to multiple languages.

Also, speaking from my own, personal experience of years of teaching adult literacy, most people who speak English well enough to get by but can't read it are generally not literate in their own language, either. For people who are new English speakers and can read in their own language, Google Translate has some good tools for translating whatever people want to read online. 

So bottom line: If you are volunteering to help people who need translation into other languages, fantastic! Get in touch ASAP! Otherwise, please be considerate of the volunteers who are providing this community service for you.

Well said Rachella,

I think people forget that the service that your providing is free and off your own back!

Must say its quite annoying to see people that are eager to go out of their way and go on every local social media platform to purposely bad mouth local community groups that volunteer their time for free.

It don't make sense?
