[LINK] NSW Election Multilingual information is not accessible

The ALT Tags on the foreign language images are in english!
The webpage/menus/links are only in english.

I haven't ascertained - whether the PDFs are indexed in
Google and therefore discoverable in other languages.
Perhaps someone who can speak one of these other languages
can check....

I tried to cut the text out of the (Arabic) PDF to paste
into google translate - but alas could not!

Seems fail fail fail on all levels.
