Why you shouldn’t rely on google Translate

https://blogs.transparent.com/language-news/2015/09/02/how-google-translate-works-and-why-it-doesnt-measure-up/

This is why we will always be better but it’s still good to have a helping hand.

Have you got any howlers resulting from google Translate phrases?

Have a great earth day
