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.
The University of Guayaquil (Spanish: Universidad de Guayaquil), known colloquially as the Estatal (i.e., "State", in the same sense as, for example, a school such as "Iowa State" would simply be called "State" by local students), is a public university located in Guayaquil, Guayas Province, Ecuador. It is the oldest university in the city and has the largest student body. It operates six extension universities throughout the country.
