FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Louisiana Supreme Court’s award-winning web site has recently expanded to include a language translation tool making the entire web site translatable into 31 different languages. Found on the Louisiana Supreme Court web site home page at www.lasc.org and powered by Google, the translation tool requires only a click on the language of choice to activate the web site content in the chosen language.
According to Chief Justice Catherine D. “Kitty” Kimball, “Keeping the web site current and user-friendly is a priority for this court, as the web site is often the resource where citizens access court information. We are excited about the addition of a translation tool as it was a simple improvement that has a huge impact. Louisiana Supreme Court information is now accessible to the diverse, non-English speaking audience living within the state of Louisiana and to web-users throughout the world.”
In 2005, the Louisiana Supreme Court web site was awarded a spot on the Top-10 Court Web Sites list by Justice Served, an alliance of court management and justice experts, for being among the best in providing on-line court services. The court web site averages about 5.8 million hits and hosts approximately 77,500 visitors per month.
