Translation – Explanation and Caution

The electronic translation service on the City of Surrey’s web site is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation may vary in some of the languages offered by Google. The goal of the basic translation is to capture the general intention of the original English material.

Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages. Unfortunately, not all the languages spoken in the City of Surrey are translated.

Wording for Donor Plaques

The Gifts and Donations Program is intended to increase public enjoyment of Surrey Parks, therefore wording for the signage on donated assets should have a positive tone. Donors are encouraged to choose messages that are uplifting, inspirational or promote enjoyment of the park area in which the asset is located.

Assets donated through this program should not be intended to serve as replacements for appropriate memorial markers. Dates indicating lifetime and wording that serves to create a memorial to a deceased person or persons will not be permitted. Messages of a private nature and acronyms are not permitted, as they may be wrongly interpreted by members of the public.

Wording in languages other than English is permitted, subject to the guidelines above, however, additional costs may apply for manufacturing the plaque.

Donation Bench Plaque

Donated benches are fitted with a 3" x 7" bronze plaque, inscribed with a message of three to four lines with up to 30 characters on each line.

Donation Tree Plaque

Donated trees are fitted with a 3" x 12" bronze plaque installed at the base of the tree and inscribed with a message of two to three lines, with up to 30 characters on each line. Wording for tree plaques is intended to have an interpretive aspect as well as a commemorative benefit. The first two lines of the plaque will show the common and botanical names of the tree, and the final line may be personalized.
