"The translation you need in a matter of seconds. "

What do you like best?

I remember when it used to be a problem to communicate because we did not speak the same language of the person and we had to be with a dictionary at hand while we searched word for word of some text or something that somebody told us, it was quite complicated to communicate like this, this problem was over as applications were emerging that made us faster and easier translation forms, and Google could not stay behind, I designed one of my favorite applications and what else I use, Google Language Translator is an online query tool free, which offers instant translations. Currently, the platform supports around 80 languages, among which are as exotic languages ​​as Zulu, Gujarati, Igbo, Hausa, Telugu or Urdu. Google Translator translates words, phrases and even web pages. In short, this is the best way to universalize information and make it accessible to all people, regardless of the language they speak, with Google Translator the language will no longer be a problem to communicate.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the translations do not have much logic or could be better, I even had to go to the dictionary or other applications to verify that the translation is ok when I get the impression that it is not.

Google Translator is free, easy to use, with a nice interface and where you can translate from the most known languages ​​to the most exotic, it also gives you the option to listen to the whole text to see how you hear the pronunciation, with Google Keep, the language to communicate will not be a problem.

"Google Translate - Review"

What do you like best?

Google Translate is a valuable tool that makes it very easy to work with texts in different languages. The main advantage of Google Translate is the fact that this service is available completely free of charge and that it supports a significant number of languages, so I can translate the text into the language of my choice, thus reducing the barriers to contact with global customers. Another advantage that I liked very much when using Google Translate is the ability to pronounce the synthesizer thanks to the addition of spelling we can also learn how to pronounce the word correctly. Another advantage is the ability to translate text documents in many languages so that we do not have to waste time copying their elements. It is worth mentioning the fact that Google Translate finds its application not only in business but also in everyday situations, Google Translate is also available as a mobile application, which is very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The main drawback is that Google Translate often uses word paraphrases, so some translated sentences may sound different, another drawback is the limit of 5,000 characters.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a person who works every day with customers from all over the world, you should consider using Google Translate, because it is a very useful tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using Google Translate I can translate emails and documents in different languages and check the meaning of individual words while learning a new language.

"El gigante de la traducción."

What do you like best?

Me gusta este traductor por ser uno de los mas usado a nivel de la web y en dispositivos por su acceso gratuito en la Internet, cuenta con una traducción de noventa idiomas, facilitando la interpretación de contenido en una pagina en la que no se maneje el idioma, su versión actual es mas sofisticada que hace unos años, por su traducción de imágenes, encabezados, títulos y substitutos en las paginas web. Ayuda en la interpretación de conversaciones fluida con otra persona por su traductor de voz implementado en sus características, su manera de traducir hace parecer al usuario un experto en el idioma proporcionado por su rapidez de respuesta.

What do you dislike?

A pesar de su velocidad de traducción y disponibilidad en múltiples dispositivos este servicio web gratuito depende de la Internet para realizar cualquier tipo de interpretación lingüística.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Se debe connotar que el uso de frases expresivas o coloquiales que se manejen en nuestro país nativo en el traductor google en ocasiones lanza un resultado de interpretación absurda, se recomienda intentar usar frases técnicas en el uso de un idioma extranjero.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Traductor de Google, facilita la traducción extensa de forma instantánea con una precisión al idioma a traducir de forma eficaz, cumpliendo con las normas gramaticales y ortográfica de manera inmediata, todo esto de forma gratuita obtenido en el navegador de Google. A pesar que en ocasiones su traducción no es un 100% con exactitud siempre se va acercar a la perfección.

"Useful for a rough translation a fluent person will need to edit"

What do you like best?

Google Translate is best for translating individual words. Google Translate is good when you want to get a quick start translating something. A human being with solid language skills will have to review and make changes, usually significant changes, to ensure the translation makes sense.

What do you dislike?

Machine translation services can never fully replace human translators. I have worked as a professional interpreter and translator and it is important that other people understand the limitations of Google Translate and other services. They can give you a picture of the themes and vocabulary in a paragraph, but language is such that major mistranslations are common.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When in doubt, consult a human brain!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basic translation for comprehension of Somali, brainstorming business and building names in Somali. Our staff came up with ideas for the name of a new affordable housing project we are planning, using Google Translate as a tool; we then shared our ideas with our Somali development partner, and decided on one of the ideas together.

"Easy and Effective"

What do you like best?

I love how ease is to translate not only word but paragraphs with Google translate. Spanish is my first language and I work in the insurance sometimes I have to translate large documents from English to Spanish so I use Google translate to do it fast. I double check the translation and usually I only have to change a few things and save a lot of time!

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about this tool. I know that the translation is not going to be perfect. Sometimes words or sentences don't translate exactly the same way in to a different language so the effectiveness of Google Translate is really good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everyone knows about Google. but a lot of people don't know about the other apps Google has to offer. With Google translate you can not only translate a written word into another language but you can also listen to the word you translate into that different language.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I translate documents from English to Spanish for Benefits Enrollment meetings. I help companies create documents for their Hispanic employees so that they understand better the benefits that are offered to them.

"Word by word, nothing more"

What do you like best?

Google Translate is very effective for a quick translation of an unknown word - best for people with moderate fluency who stumble on vocabulary, or those trying to translate a street sign. The camera-based translation is interesting, but in my experience seems entirely inaccurate as the alleged meaning is different every time I take a picture of the same object. Potentially an issue with different alphabets.

What do you dislike?

The translation is generally a literal translation of each word - if you try to translate an entire sentence, it will more often than not come out sounding very clunky and confusing to a native speaker. I have often received emails that were quite obviously translated through this service, and the result is at times incomprehensible; there are other apps that better use the entire string of words to produce the correct expression in the goal language.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be careful about the volume of text you translate at a time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I am translating an industry-specific document, it does help with the occasional word here and there. But Google Translate is not my first choice, as it takes no context clues and offers no synonyms. I only choose this application when I am extremely confident in 99% of the translation I have produced, and I want to double check spelling or the correct use of a certain word.

"Google Translate works every time for me for English, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, and more!"

What do you like best?

I can choose to translate a web page or plain text on the Google Translate page. Google Translate often

recognizes foreign language on a page and offers to translate it automatically. Hyperlinks on translated pages automatically link to translated pages.

What do you dislike?

The pronunciation audio is bland with little or no regional or cultural accents.

The pronunciation audio for some languages is synthesized electronic speech, like Stephen Hawkings.

For some languages, like Irish and Uzbek, there is no pronunciation audio on the translations I've tried.

Google Translate is often too minimalist. It would help if they promoted things like offline translation on the main Translate page, perhaps occasionally after a translation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider that Google Translate is available on your devices even when the internet is not available.

Try using the "Translate This Link" link from Google Search. It will take you to a version of the destination page translated on-the-fly or from its cache. Hyperlinks to foreign-language sites from that page will lead to translated content as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reading and writing business documents, websites, and emails in other languages.

The greatest benefit is breaking down the language barriers.

Google Translate integrates with my computer software research work better than any other translation technology I've ever tried.

"I will no longer have language problems with the google translator "

What do you like best?

is a multilingual automatic translation system, developed and provided by Google, to translate text, voice, images or video in real time from one language to another, Google Translator has the ability to translate 103 languages at different levels, the system provides a free service and daily is used by more than 200 million people , and The Google Translator is available in some browsers as an extension that translates the texts it collects in the websites that are accessed, There is also an extension for the Google Chrome browser, Google Translate was integrated into the standard browser of Google Chrome to automatically translate the web page that is consulted

What do you dislike?

what I dislike is that since December, the free translation of texts has been limited by Google to 5,000 characters, while the translation of web pages does not have an extension limit, they should extend the capacity of characters

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because it integrates very well with the web, it has an interface for mobile device, also Android version and iOS version, you can use it anywhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help with the traucer a lot, since there are clients from other countries that are not Spanish speaking, and they consult me in English mostly. I turn to the translator to understand what they want, and manage to attend to them, that is what I resolve, and what helps me in understanding what my clients want to consult.

"Simple and easy translator software"

What do you like best?

I like that you are given an option to either type handwright Or speak to text into the text box for translation I also love the fact that you can hear your entries spoken in the language we were translating to

What do you dislike?

I don’t have complaints really at all. The only thing I can think of is I don’t like that when you tap to paste the text in the box sometimes it’s so close to where you tap to change languages that it pulls up the other screen to choose a different language although not a big deal other than that it runs great and has never steered me wrong.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software is a staple for me, in my personal life as well as my professional life. Many venues that myself or other DJs that I book speak Spanish only so it comes in very handy. I also spent a lot of my personal time with Latino communities.

"Supports very many languanges"

What do you like best?

I have used google to translate text from any languange such as arabic, portugese, spanish and many others to English and vice versa. Its languange detection feature is my favorite when am using Google Translate it lets me add text from any languange Google Translate will detect the languange and give me output in English or any other languange of my choice.

What do you dislike?

I do not have anything I dislike in Google Translate but if I could also be able to use Google Translate offline it would be a better experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Translate has amazing features such as languange detection. It is also available as a plugin you can install in goog chrome to automatically translate all webpages that are not in your languange.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Translate lets me read emails sent to me in foreign languanges, It also lets me news fron various websites and ebooks .

"Google Translate Review"

What do you like best?

I like how quick and easy it is to use. Also, I like that there's a mobile app I can take on the go and use in real time or when I have time to prepare myself before having a conversation with a Spanish speaking customer.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that the program doesn't always give the correct translation - sometimes it gives a literal translation that doesn't quite fit what it would be in the native tongue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not always 100% accurate, but it gets the job down and usually has a solid translation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I have to remember specific verbs or phrases for Spanish speaking clients (in my past position) I would often utilize it. It's nice to refresh my Spanish from time to time as well.

"Great for Tourism/ Travel Agencies"

What do you like best?

I like that I can work with our international teams and not need to consult with coworkers translating messages for us, and we can rely on Google Translate to do the work for us.

What do you dislike?

Its not 100% accurate on the translations and context, as many languages have context based meanings, but the message can still get across. It has come along way from the the days of auto translate on youtube where it was pure gibberish, and can be relied on for communication now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. its really great as long as you keep in mind it isnt a human translator that can interpret context and subtleties.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to type our responses in english and it will automatically translate into the needed language, and vice versa, eliminating the need for a translator or employee that speaks both languages required.

"Highly pleased"

What do you like best?

I like the choice of languages, the speed on which it translates, but mostly the accuracy. I like the option to listen to the pronunciation in other languages such as Italian.

What do you dislike?

The accuracy is not always right on. It would be nice to have a translated menu of options available to choose from based on verb tense, and on the different meanings one word can have with example sentences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am confronted at times with 'ast-minute' unknown terminology due to the fact I interpret in different fields. Google Translate is on my phone, easy quick access for on-the-job interpretation.

Not Accurate and requires a lot of checking sometimes

"My favorite translation service"

What do you like best?

It has improved a lot with the years and it has voice outputs for most languages! It also gives you several options and the mobile app is easy to use and includes offline functionality.

What do you dislike?

All translation services are limited because they don't focus on the meaning. Hopefully with improvements in AI that will get better

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use google translate a lot to help me with English-Spanish translations at work. I only use it as a suggestion, I know better than to just copy paste what I get from it.

"Great if you don't account for grammar"

What do you like best?

The wide array of languages offered, as well as the opportunity to listen to the words as they're spoken. It makes it quite easy to learn simple words or phrases, or translate what someone else is saying as they speak.

What do you dislike?

Grammar is not accounted for when translating from English. English is structured differently than most other languages, it seems, so sentences come out as confusing. It also makes it obvious that the person has been using a translator.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind the grammar issue. Translate is great for spelling foreign words, but the grammar can be quite off at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can translate quick words or phrases easily, even if I don't know the language. I can just have Translate automatically guess the language.

"Invaluable for Spanish class and Russian vocabulary"

What do you like best?

The Spanish teacher and I need Google Translate to communicate with each other and to teach the students. My students are also interested in Russian, and the fact that I can look up whatever they want to know instantly is invaluable.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes things need to be translated culturally rather than literally, but GT has gotten better about this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Spanish teacher and I are able to communicate with each other and we are able to more effectively teach the students.

"It has its limitations, but its great"

What do you like best?

I work for a Chinese based company, so a lot of our default software is Chinese based (which I do not speak) and it allows me to navigate the software that doesnt have an English version, or help me navigate to the correct menu to change the languages, where applicable.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't translate it that well, and contextually it doesnt make much sense, but for basic words itll work well, and for complex sentences and paragraphs, it doesnt understand the context as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep up the good work Google!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to navigate pages in Chinese for my current role.

"Good for basic translation!"

What do you like best?

Very quick for basic translation. It is a quick and easy life saver when wanting to translate basic text for sure!

What do you dislike?

Google needs to fine tune the details as some words have different meanings when used in differences scenarios and may mean another thing when translated to another language.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When speaking with patients in another language, if a word is forgotten, once can easily look up its translation and continue the session.

"Key tool for Foreign Language"

What do you like best?

My students are able to use their knowledge base to take new terms and use them properly.

What do you dislike?

Many times, students tend to think they can use this tool to do their work for them instead of using it to assist with what they already know.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use this as an aide in traveling to a foreign country, but do not rely on it for more than a few words at a time! The more complicated the phrase to be translated, the more likely you are to get errors.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've saved hundreds of dollars in budget money by not having to purchase paper dictionaries. Many of my students are a lot more comfortable attempting new concepts and vocabulary by using the "speak" function in Google Translate.

"I use it on daily basis and it literally saved my day at work countless times"

What do you like best?

The fact that it's very light and doesn't require a fast internet connection so it lets me use it wherever I am and no matter how slow the WiFi connection is. It has a language detection option that helped many times hen I don't know the language a script is written in. It has an mobile application which saves me the time I use to open the browser and enter its website.

What do you dislike?

That you have to be online and connected to the internet to you it either the application or the website of course. Also its translation in grammar and context wise can't be 100% trusted and used as it is without modifications.

"Amazing! "

What do you like best?

This is so easy to use and convenient especially when you don't know what someone else is saying. This is such an easy tool to use especially while travelling.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be difficult to type the other language and time consuming. As well as for a language such as french, it can be difficult to type in the special letters, so it would be handy to have a built in keyboard if possible

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The team has been able to travel to various countries and communicate with clients because of this application

"Really easy for translation and a good tools for learning"

What do you like best?

I like that Google Translate is a free service that can translate complete text in also any language. IT even has Latin.

I use both the web version and the Android Apps.

I use the web version mainly for translating tutorial from French to English and i have very little to change afterward. I Also use it for voice recognition. It help me to learn Japanese pronunciation.

I use the Apps mostly for the photo features. It's very useful when i'm in a new place.

What do you dislike?

There is always a few errors in translations. As French is my native language, i see sometime error from English to French. Also sometime, it's not the right word in Japanese. I would believe that other language have also some issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend to people to use it most of the time. Since it's a cloud service, more use equal for right answers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It make it easier to translate document from french to English.

"Good for Simple Phrases"

What do you like best?

What I do like: Google Translate is a very handy tool for short phrases, it's very simple to use and it's easy to access, and it's also pretty funny from time to time, it's range of languages is also very insightful, the speed of the program is also fantastic, it usually processes the phrase within seconds

What do you dislike?

What I dislike: the software sometimes struggles with syntax, grammar, and wording in other places, it's not a very accurate software, it's mainly if you want to get the gist of what you're reading. Not that a student for a language would use this software anyway, but you absolutely must refrain from trying to translate long sentences and paragraphs on this software other wise it will freak out, and it will freak out hard. Sometimes what people say can be lost in the translation, leading to some often pretty humorous postings around various corners of the internet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use it expecting it to translate an Essay, Google Translate only does it's job for minor phrases and simple jargen, the page translate can be useful from time to time, but it's not always the most accurate. it definitely helps to have an idea of the basics of what language it is you're trying to translate to/from.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

if you have a client online who speaks another language it can be used for simple phrases, it can help identify the key issues of what problem the customer is trying to solve.

"The best free online translation service."

What do you like best?

- Google Translate is free and easy to use, and is constantly getting better thanks to recent innovations in understanding natural language through technology.

- Attempts to translate practically every popular language out there.

- You have the ability to either translate a piece of text, a document via OCR file-upload or a whole webpage/website given a URL.

- Language is usually selected automatically which is handy if you don't know the language you're translating from.

- Integrated into Google Chrome so if you're browsing a website and Google Translate detects that it is in a different language, it will automatically offer to translate for you without the need to refresh or manually enter the URL in to the Google Translate website. Even works when you're logged in to a site.

- Has a commercial translation API available.

What do you dislike?

- Translation accuracy can vary. For more popular languages like English, French, Spanish, German for example the translations are often very good, however for smaller languages (Like Yiddish), it's often not as good.

- While useful for quick and dirty translations, will likely never be an alternative to a real, human translator.

- Translation API is not free to use (however it is inexpensive for casual uses).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for quick and free translations online of text and websites, there's no better place to look than the market leader, Google Translate. Just don't go in expecting miracles.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows me to attempt to read content from foreign sources without having to actually know the origin language. Allows me to communicate with people who speak other languages online easily.

Google Tranlate gives you Realtime translations, allows you to translate complete websites and documents, learn words usage by examples and how to pronounce them properly.

More than 50+ languages at your disposal to make translations from.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes translations can be super literal but nothing you cannot change clicking on the word / part of the sentence you feel looks weird and choose another way to translate it. It features lots of alternative translations so you can pick the one you feel the most comfortable with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's always recommended to learn / speak more than one language, so you will understand other countries' culture and way of thinking. Google Translate can help you in your Language learning in so many ways.

Trying to read a foreign magazine / post? Use Google Translate and have it your way, on your own native

language.

"It made my language learning easier."

What do you like best?

I cannot think about going through a day without using Google Translate at least once.

As I'm still getting really proficient at English, I'm always looking for words, phrases or professional vocabulary.

Looking for a word or a way to pronounce one, it's what has me hooked to the app.

What do you dislike?

At this time, I haven't found anything I don't like. Maybe if you could keep track of what words you've looked out for in the past after you close the Android app would be great.

There's no way Google Translate had something you dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need for a quick and easy translation, Google Translate will do the trick for sure. It's free to use and sort of community funded, so it's constantly updating their words base.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a sometimes Freelance programmer, I find myself talking to a bunch of foreign clients that only speak English and sometimes a "weird" English. I look out for the words they say to get an idea of what they're trying to say.

"World's leading and most efficient machine translator/translation service"

What do you like best?

Google translate allows us to translate from and to a huge number of different languages.The best feature is that it allows you to take a photo with your phone and give it to google translate, which google translate will translate to you, in just a fraction of second. It is just awsome when you visit aplace you've never

been before, and people speak a language you don't even know and google translate helps you in no time.

What do you dislike?

Nothing of that sort, but the translation output can be improved as always, sometimes some sentence translations are very funny. In case of single word translation its ok. Maybe Google is the only company that can approach it, with very complex machine learning.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend everyone to use google translate service. It helps you to translate maximum languages in a single blink. Its not at all expensive. It is just awsome when you visit aplace you've never

been before, and people speak a language you don't even know and google translate helps you in no time.The best feature is that it allows you to take a photo with your phone and give it to google translate, which google translate will translate to you

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a simple user, I've used google translate since three to five years. and it helped me in a variety of

situations, from homework, to being able to translate stuff during a trip. It also helps me in my translation work. for my studies.

"It can be improved"

What do you like best?

Google translate offers users to improve grammar and whole translations wiith like a playing a game. You can select up to 5 languages. You can translate or even validate which is a great feature! I think that if one translation is checked by more than one people it provides great database of translation. Also Google translate has nice user interface so I can easily use it without having a problem in both mobile device and pc.

What do you dislike?

I think that its a great solution for make users help to improve itself but it is also open to be manipulated if for example if 100 of people who are known each other want to manipulate it, it is open for that I think. They should have better mechanism in order to check the true translations because I have faced some funny mistranslation sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is nice but I think that people should double check if they are want to translate complex sentences.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it for daily life when i need an exact translation but actually I did not rely on that and changed a lot of sentences after translation.

"Foreign languages documentation? Weird vocabulary? Google Translate will help!"

What do you like best?

I'm fond to Language learning. I'm always running into weird vocabulary and reading foreign magazines / websites. Google Translate is almost always opened either in a tab of my Browser or the Android App running in the background of my phone.

I'm always using it, as i speak nearly four languages I'm always forgetting words even in my native language so looking out for words translation and definitions is something i do on a daily basis.

What do you dislike?

When you try to translate a website the "lingo" can break phrases structures and make the translations go all crazy. There isn't much they can do about this since there's always new "slang" words being created by people and inserting them into phrases structures might be a hell of a work to do for them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Are you into reading foreign languages writings? Are you learning a new language and want to get some words definitions? Google Translate will help you sort all that out. Definitions, phrases, words usage examples and a sometimes robotic voice that will help you with pronunciation.

All this for free, Google made it once again.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes i found myself reading programming languages documentations, snippets or tutorials written in another languages I'm not proficient at like German, Japanese, Polish.

Google Translate does its job guiding me through a sometimes too literal translation, even though it might not be what you'd expect, it can lead you in the correct way and help you understand the idea of the translated text.

"As a Languages freak, i spent at least an hour a day in the Google Translate Android APP"

What do you like best?

Easy to use.

I can save translations for later use when offline on my Phone.

It has Greek, some Latin and English of course, these to name a few (I'm a native Spanish speaker).

What do you dislike?

Sometimes translations can be really literal. Sometimes you might want to translate from Spanish to English, then your desired final language because sometimes Spanish to X lacks of naturalism and goes all wrong with the meaning of a phrase.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Whether you need to translate something or you want to learn a new word, this is the way to go. I've learned so much from Google Translate that i cannot imagine going through a day without visiting it to get some vocabulary learning up and running!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes i forget some vocabulary in either English or German so i have to look up for the translation of a word / phrase everytime i have to use them.

You can even use your phone's camera and translate something through a picture.

"A fantastic tool for translations."

What do you like best?

Google traslate works great in many ways. It takes verbal, visual, and written words.

I like because it's makes things much easier I like the alternatives that they offer when you translate something, many words have different meanings for that word so it is useful for one to take that personal decision of what that word implies.

Overall great easy to use translation tool.

What do you dislike?

Obviously translations are not always perfect. Simply because language is complicated but some time because people don't use the correct punctuation, but I think the google learning machine are also improving on this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recheck something written in another language, translate texts and improve my web browsing surfing the foreign pages.

Helpful?
