One Comment on “Advantages of machine translation”

  1. The problem that I see with using a technology based translation service is that you cannot replace the experience, knowledge of cultural references and knowledge of accents and dialects that can be brought to translation carried out by a professional (human translator)

    Also, my exerience of using Google Translate has made me rather sceptical of how good a machine based translation service can be.
