I guess that's where the infamous "post-editing" usually kicks in, which, together with MT, CAT tools devs and agencies alike seem so fond of... (maybe some of you attended the last SDL-centered virtual conference hosted here a couple weeks ago)

There might be bigger perils than that, Jul 1, 2016

not even mentioning the perils of auto-predictions, when you accidentally send an e-mail to a prestigious publisher saying: Hello Juicy. [Judy] I am submitting the three remaining porns[poems] and some translations of contemporary porns [poems] by wombs [women] writers.

A real story, slightly exaggerated. Thank God I caught it the last minute and did not send it in this form.
