My overall experience with Google Translator is amazing. As a freelancer, I worked with different types of people around the world who use different languages. All people don't know English, they love to write in their native language. Google Translator tool always helps me in this type of situation, communication becomes smooth with those types of clients which helps me to connect with more people.

Pros

Google has developed an excellent tool that is very helpful for all people around the world. Not only a few sentences or paragraphs, but this tool also allows to translation of different kinds of files such as DOCX, PDF, XLXS, etc. It's very simple and easy to use, I can type texts directly, add texts through a virtual keyboard even translate by voice. Another helpful feature is, I can check the translation history which is really helpful. Integration Google Translator with WordPress website is pretty easy by using the plugin, as well as on the browser extension even in the smartphone.

Cons

Almost everything is good in this tool, but there is a weird thing I've noticed on Google Translator which is its translate style. For example, a sentence is written in English that I've translated into the Bengali language; the tool sometimes can't translate the sentence like how the proper native Bengali language act. There are no human feelings in the texts, seems like it's translating by a robot using very hard words. And the translated texts are also shown in the English alphabet but not in the correct spelling. I think this software needs to improve the user experience.

Google Translate has solved some small language barrier issues for the duration of my use of it, it is easy to use and understand however, like I said before its illiteracy to colloquialism can causes major mishaps to occur.

Pros

Google Translate is a very easy software to use for very simple translations of languages. There is a web browser version and an app allowing for use wherever you happen to be. Google Translate has a plethora of languages and for the vast majority of people your desired language will be on this software. The speaking feature lets someone speak into the software to translate it which makes interactions easier and the mic features allow for you to not only get a translation, but also a sound. Google Translate also shows you the part of speech if you are translating a singular word and shows other variations that could be said.

Cons

The biggest problem with Google Translate is its accuracy of the translation. The software has almost no recognition of slang or lingo which causes a lot of casualties. One interaction I had on Google Translate when I was translating Filipino to English caused there to simply be no translation. The lack of human understanding in the software makes certain languages very difficult to translate. Even translating colloquial phrases in a language you can already comprehend can cause incorrect translations.
