My cousin just came to Philippines to attend a wedding. She cant understand any English word. So I decided to use Google Translator to communicate with her. When I already finish typing my sentence and read what Google Translator translate she laughed. How is google translator to translate English to Japanese word?

it is 70% reliable..There will be still some grammatical mistakes after the translation.

I find it very reliable. I only have used it with common languages like Spanish and French though.

Nah, it is not reliable at all. i tried it once, and never again. i just inputted a simple sentence in Filipino and the translation was word by word i guess, it was so funny. it's hard to find a good translator for not so common languages.

My mother tongue is Telugu, a regional language, I believe it's still in beta and I have to rate it 20 with the score of 100. Whenever I translate other languages to English (which are not beta) I find it useful. though i see certain error, still you can understand it.

It's not perfect but it helps me out sometimes when I need to write a short message from English to Spanish.

I think good translator is reliable to some extend. I think it is not good to translate the content fully and it can translate to a very good accuracy.

It is reliable if you are going to convert from Tagalog to English, it's accuracy can be somewhat 95% correct. But if you are going to convert from English to tagalog it can be troublesome and somewhat unreliable. So that's just something you have to watch out for my friend.
