    Default Best free translator?

    There's loads of free translators around ("language translator" "free translator" "itranslate", etc), but whats the most accurate one? Or do they all use the same source?

    As a teacher of world languages, I highly recommend not using a translator at all. Direct word for word translations quite often make you look dumb and don't convey the meaning of what you meant anyway. Stick with a website like English to French, Italian, German & Spanish Dictionary - WordReference.com and just look up the important words as you need them.

    I have only ever used iTranslate and do not endorse it. It gets confused easily and often cannot or does not translate things that I think it ought to do. I will monitor this thread for news of something better.
