If you are searching for a translator and type key words, i.e. “translator english spanish”  we find all the best known dictionaries and translation machines, instead of translation services providers, human translators.

Let’s see the first page of Google results in this case:

 

Google Translate

Who doesn’t know this tool? It translates English. Spanish. French. Detect language. English. Spanish. Arabic. Translate text … Type text or a website address or translate a document. Moreover, you can listen to the pronunciation and add your own translation, if necessary. It is a good dictionary but, in our opinion, there are a lot of mistakes in sentences translation. Don’t forget that it is a machine. Machines don’t understand the irony, the jokes, the idioms and they usually translate wrongly.
