Taga-cho’s awful English Web pages

I’m checking all the official Web sites for all of Shiga’s cities and towns. A few towns have English pages. 

Taga-cho has English pages, but unfortunately, they used automated (software) translation. The English is very bad, the worst in Shiga.

However, the Board of Education has a separate page with the title: 
「多賀を世界に発信プロジェクト」 
http://www.tagatown.jp/educate/Introduce_taga/ 

It is a good idea for a project, and they have English descriptions of sightseeing spots in Taga-cho. The English is not bad. Probably one of their ALTs helped with the English. 

They need to make English links though, and coordinate or integrate with the bad-English page. 

Most towns are unable to create English pages. I think Shiga’s Biwako Visitors Bureau should help them with that.
