The New Mexico Museum of Art wants its resources to be as accessible as possible. For a website, one component of accessibility is language. The Humanities Project includes human translated text, but also employs machine translation to enable the site to be fully explored in languages other than English.  On the bottom left side of your window you will see the translation plugin on our site which allows users to toggle between other frequently used languages:

We acknowledge that all languages have a variety of dialects and manners of speaking and that both human and machine translation may differ from individual dialects. The use of machine translation isn’t perfect, but it allows for full website accessibility in a visitor’s preferred language. We hope that you find interest and value in the Humanities Project, in any language.
