Disclaimers

Please remember that, per our own Disclaimers (POLICY), "MeritBadge.org is an online, open-content, collaborative encyclopedia developed by volunteers and is not affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) or with the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM)."

Additionally, the use of statistical machine translation (via Google Translate) cannot possibly guarantee literal accuracy and is in no way formal or official content.

So, while the translation service offered is not perfect, it's still a great tool for those whose native language is not English.
