If all you want from translation is a low rate,
don't wander around, use Google Translate!

So true May 31, 2014

Some still think the process is achieved through osmosis when we are sleeping.

It made me laugh!!!

I feel a limerick coming on May 31, 2014

There once was an MT from Google
whose crowdsource and 'gorithm did boo-zle
you put the words in
and give it a spin
That dazzling MT from Google

The limerick feeling must be catching Jun 1, 2014

The MT called Google Translate
Charges zilch, and it won't make you late.
But pay peanuts, get monkeys.
Pay nothing - this junk is
The best you can get at that rate.

Google Translate?
Not Google Translator?
What a fathead!
Language distortionator!

The other way around... Jun 2, 2014

...from the broker´s side:

Give us your best rate
Or we´ll employ Google translate
Be humble and pray
That after 90 days we pay!

[Sorry for my crude English]
