Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Seikyo Shimbun was launched on 9 May 1951. It has a circulation of 5.5 million copies, Japan's third largest daily. The newspaper belongs to the Sōka Gakkai and is associated with the New Komeito political party. It often features articles about Daisaku Ikeda, the president of the Soka Gakkai, or editorials written by him.
The Seikyo Shimbun is delivered throughout Japan by volunteer deliverers.
