Free translations are embarrassing !

If you don’t think it’s worth paying for a professional translation when you can just get a free internet translation system to do the job, this will give you an idea of the quality of an automated translation:

1. Type ‘free translation’ in Google and pick a free translation service - say Google Translate, SDL or Babylon.
2.Copy a paragraph of your website or literature.
3. Paste it into the automated system and translate it from English to French. In fact, try any language you like.
4.Then copy the resulting text and repeat the operation from French to English.

These 'freebies' are no more than a poor attempt to convince internet users that machines can do the job. If you are conscious about the quality and accuracy of your message, and if you are serious about your foreign audience, save yourself the embarassment and talk to a native translator!
