FAQ
Is there a way for the text translation to be more accurate?

All of our translations are done automatically through state-of-the-art technology. However, even today's most sophisticated text translation software cannot approach the fluency of a native speaker or possess the skill of a professional translator. Computers do an excellent job but they cannot always account for nuance, connotation, and all of the subtleties of language.


Machine translation is not always perfectly accurate because the meaning of words depends upon the context in which they are used. Because of this, accurate translation requires an understanding of the context, as well as an understanding of the structure and rules of the language. While engineers and linguists are working on improvements, it will be some time before computer translations can capture the full range of human language. In the interim, our translation system offers the best computer generated translations available.
