The University of Washington Human Resources web properties use an automatic translation service that uses state-of-the-art technology, not human translators, to translate text and provide instant translations in different languages. By providing these translations, we hope to make essential information available to employees who visit our website. Please be aware that since translations are done by machine, they may not always be perfect. We provide translations of UWHR’s web content as a courtesy to employees. We do not own, manage or control any aspect of the translations and do not make any promises, assurances, or guarantees as to the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of the translations provided. We can only verify the validity and accuracy of the information provided in English and, because of this, the English version of our website is the official text. If you have questions related to your employment or about the information on this website, please contact your Human Resources consultant for more information.
