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 Central Siberian Plateau (Russian: Среднесиби́рское плоского́рье, Srednesibirskoye ploskogorye) is made up of sharply demarcated surfaces of varying altitudes occupying most of Siberia between the Yenisei and Lena rivers. It extends over an area of 3.5 million km². The highest point is the Putoran Mountains, rising to 1,701 m (5,581 ft). To the north of the plateau are the Putoran Mountains while to the south are the Eastern Sayan and the Baikal Mountains. To the east the plateau gives way to the low-lying land of the Yakuts. The Central Siberian Plateau covers one-third of Siberia.
