Who’s the better translator: Machines or humans? CNN.com …

Now, there’s a very interesting question for today. Who is the better translator? Machine or Human? There are arguments for both sides of the coin but I think that at the end of the day, Humans are by far better.
Machine translation has come a very long way in the past decade but there is still a way for it to go. Some people prefer machine translation because of affordability but when it comes down to accuracy, then Human translation has a definite edge. There are so many localized phrases and terminology that machine language translation still has difficulty dealing with and this problem may never go way for the machines but let’s not knock machine translation all together. Many companies use a well balanced combination of both types of translations.
