Hi there, I work for a large UK translations company. There are a few points to make regarding automated translation systems such as those found online. Software can be used for translation projects, but I would advise against it if what you're translating is intended ultimately for publication. There are often so many cultural nuances to take into consideration that cutting corners by using translation software can render your message practically impossible to understand for your target audience. And beyond popular European languages like Spanish (that being 2nd only to English and 4th overall in the world), you run the risk of dramatic misinterpretation. Often the only way to go is to utilise the services of a professional translator. Anyway, great blog though; keep it up. Good to have these things discussed so that people get the facts rather than being left to speculate and not get the results that they want. There is a good article on the subject to be found here: http://www.articlesbase.com/communication-articles/modern-translation-issues-human-vs-machine-532272.html
