Overall Opinion: Google translate is quick, free, and for the most part accurate. It is a great software for someone trying to learn a language or translate words to understand what something means. There is a multitude of languages that are supported with this tool.

Pros: Language Detection: If you are unsure of what the language is that you are trying to translate, google translate has a tool to detect what the language is and translate it to the target language. Fast: Google Translate gives you translations instantly. This software translates words as you type, making it faster than any human translator. Easy To Use: Google Translate has a user friendly interface that is straight forward making it easy for anyone to understand.

Cons: Improper Translation: While Google Translate is an incredibly fast translation tool, it can often lack in the quality of the output. While Google Translate supports a multitude of languages, it doesn't necessarily translate from language to language correctly. Common languages such as English and Spanish tend to have a more comprehensible outcome than other languages. Less common languages or languages that are harder to translate tend to have poor outputs. Poor Grammar: Google translate may translate between languages so you are able to understand what they mean, however they do not hold high quality standards when it comes to proper grammar. For example, verbs are often left conjugated from language to language. Language Selection: While Google Translate supports over 100 languages, they don't support all languages and often translate less common languages incorrectly.

grex is using Google Translate every other week recently.
