Hi Quaquaqua

Can I assure that teachers don't just mark essays with the first thing that comes into our heads. I do quite a bit of translation from French into English and from time to time, people give me stuff to 'tidy up' that they have already translated using Google. Most of the time it's quicker to go back to the original French.

Hi sugarplum,

I have just enough knowledge of French to know what's correct up to a point.

Just out of interest (and I'm not trying to be funny) if you have to resort to google translate, how do know it gets it right?

I just find google translate consistantly incorrect.
