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.

Breisky started his career as an official of the Lower Austrian government in 1895 and from 1905 served as adivisor for Lutheran cultural affairs in the Cisleithanian Ministry of Education. After World War I he was promoted to a ministry department chief.
When Schober resigned on 26 January 1922, Breisky had one day as acting Austrian chancellor, before he again joined Schober's second cabinet as Culture Minister and Vice-Chancellor. With the election of Chancellor Ignaz Seipel on 31 May 1922, Breisky resigned and went on to serve as President of the Austrian Statistical Service (Bundeamt für Statistik) from 1923 to 1931.
