    Google translate isn't so good with speaking....

    My wife (a canadian) has a bilingual (French/English) job where she runs into people trying to use Google translate all the time to try to translate between French and English when they don't speak the language.

    A good example.... a French speaker used word 'ascending' in french, which is 'acendant' (pronounced ah-sen-DAH') but google translated it as 'a sens dent' - which is pronounced exactly the same, but means 'without teeth' This sort of thing is a normal occurrence...
    Google has a long way to go.
