Post The Problem with Online Translators

Go to AltaVista. Type in "Aw this translator sucks" and you'll get "Este traductor del Aw aspira" (which I believe means, roughly, that this translator of Aw breaths! )

A translator is no substitute for a human.

It's not fair putting "Aw" in there though. Heck, i don't even know what part of speech "aw" would be in english.

(Ok, its an exclamation kinda like "wow" but you didn't indicate that by putting comma in after it seperating it from the main clause of the sentence. But that's not my point. )
