Free translation, automatic translation
services, machine translation, online translation software and many
With so many offers of free translation out there it may become very tempting for those in need of translation services go down that route - the translation is generated within seconds, and it is free!
If you have ever considered using automated software for business purposes, I would strongly recommend you to think twice, but meanwhile try to do a small test. It really is great fun, and it will show you exactly why you should be very cautious in trusting your personal or business image to free translation.
Go to Babelfish free translation
(Alta Vista's online service) and insert some text you need translating in the Babel Fish translation box. Choose the language combination (let's say English-Russian) and press translate. If you know Russian you will already see the lack of accuracy in translation. Now translate the newly generated Russian translation back to English again and you will see how ridiculous the results are.
If you are serious about the message you are sending to your Russian prospects, then using automatic translation software should be avoided.
