4 disadvantages of automatic translation

Professional translation a rip-off? 4 disadvantages of automatic translation!


In this technologically advanced era, automatic translation has been frequently used by people. When building a Chinese-English website, people tend to use automatic translation because most of the online translation software can be used for free. However, is automatic translation really that wonderful? Well, let’s take a look at the 4 fatal drawbacks of automatic translation when making Chinese-English websites.


1. Unfluent sentence

Since most automatic translations are word-for-word, the outcomes are usually unfluent sentences. Users need to spend time proofreading.

2. Unable to translate professional vocabulary

When creating a web page that includes professional vocabulary, because automatic translation may not contain data with professional knowledge, the translation is often wrong. As a result, the translation result is not only difficult to understand, but even reduces the credibility of the web page.

3. Semantic confusion

Computers sometimes interpret the original text incorrectly, resulting in incorrect translation of sentence meanings.

4. Translation fails to reach the point

In poetry and prose, people are used to using gorgeous words and rhetoric. At this time, automatic translations usually can not reveal the beauty of the poetry.
