translation tools as your own You should also be aware that it is extremely easy for your professor to detect when you have done so These tools are not accurate and for the most part give you Latin gibberish You are expected to make any assigned translations using the vocabulary and grammar concepts presented in our textbook The online tools have no way of doing that so it will always be obvious when you are using them Violations of academic honesty can have serious consequences for your academic record and can result in dismissal from UH ATTENDANCE Students are expected to attend each
