“Putting Google to the Test in Translation”

| 1 Comment

In The Best Reference Websites For English Language Learners, I agree with Jeffrey Hill at the English Blog in rating Google’s Translate Service as doing the best job out there for computerized translating.

Now, though, there’s an easy way for you to make that determination for yourself.

The New York Times has just published a chart titled “Putting Google to the Test in Translation.” In it, they compare several pieces of text using Google Translate, Yahoo’s Babel Fish, and Microsoft’s Bing translation system.

I think you’ll agree that Google does the best job of the bunch…

I’m adding a link to the chart to the Best Reference list.

  1. As Jon Stewart recently remarked to Bill O’Reilly…
    “Just because you’re the least controversial on FOX, only makes you like the thinnest guy at fat camp!”

    Google translator might be the ‘best’, but it still has a loooonnnnnng way to go.
