To help improve accessibility, this site utilizes a language translator powered by Google. By choosing a language from the Google Translate menu, the user will see the webpage translated to a language other than English. The City of Worcester strives for accurate translations. However, automatic machine translation cannot guarantee accuracy. Therefore, this translation will not be entirely correct with the website content. In addition, differences in regional language, at times, as well as images and PDF documents on the website may not be translated.
