尾道と周辺市のホームページと自動翻訳 Automatic translation for the homepages of Onomichi and the surrounding cities

Among five cities of Onomichi, Hiroshima, Okayama, Matsue and Imabari, only two cities of Hiroshima and Matsue have their original respectable English written homepages.
Many homepages of the local cities in Japan are translated by the automatic translation system. It is because of cost-saving. The system can’t translate the Japanese written information in PDF or pictures and furthermore there are many strange translations seen here and there. The cautionary statement says as if the translation systems were responsible for the wrong or inferior translations, not the cities themselves. 
I wonder how much they are serious in the transmission of the local information to the world in this global era.
