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.

Constructed in the twelfth century, the chapel was originally the parish church of Betbur. Betbur was destroyed during or before the German Peasants' War, and a new village was constructed nearby on the site of what is now known as Kleingœft. The chapel retained its role as a parish church, now being the parish church of Kleingœft, its cemetery being the Kleingœft village cemetery. Later a new larger church was built in the centre of Kleingœft, but the Chapel of Betbur is still open and can be visited: occasionally religious services are still celebrated in it.
