Currently, debates are going on regarding whether an online translator is a reliable interpreter or not. As in case of every other debate, this one too has two different sides.

Foreign language teachers often discourage their students on using online translation sites. They are of the view that such sites are do not work properly, it does not help but worsen the students' grammar and syntax, thus, inculcating in them poor translation habits. They say that it is better to use foreign language dictionary than using using online translation sites.

However, there are people who find interpretation sites to be a useful tool as far as improving communication is concerned. No matter, in which team you are, the fact that will remain unaltered is that internet translation is here to stay. Moreover, they are expected to improve and become more popular with time.

So, keeping the debate aside, let us get back to the our main topic- How can online translator be helpful?

Online interpreters are free of cost, and are readily available to the general public who have access to the internet.

These save on both time and space. People who deal with interpretation knows how tedious it is to look at a bookshelf filled with reference books and dictionaries of every language that they have to deal with. As compared to this it looks easier to look up for translations and interpretations on the internet.

Translation sites often enhance the communication between different cultures. Today several people all across the globe are connected to each other through social networking sites like Facebook. Users share their experiences and the various aspects of their culture through it, and the online interpreters help them make the conversations clearer.

Translation sites can also make learning a new language easier. However, one needs to understand that the utility of the tool for the purpose of learning a whole new language is limited. This is because programmed interpreters generally work by following some coded-in methods, but language involves numerous exceptions, which go unnoticed in such software or tools. These exceptions are generally slags, idioms, irregular verbs, gender-dependent words, etc.

So, you see online translation sites are indeed helpful; all you need to do is adopt some strategies to make the fullest use of it.

First and foremost, you should stick to nouns, root verbs and adjectives when using an online translation website. Experts have agreed that such sites are generally not wrong in interpreting a noun dictionary.

Secondly, try to translate small sentences; otherwise, it becomes difficult for the translation tools to interpret the text. The smaller the sentences, the more accurate interpretations you are likely to get.

Thirdly, try to "double translate" the text. This process involves taking the text that you have translated and then re-translate it to the original language. This way you tend to get better and more accurate translation.

No matter if you prefer to choose an English to Turkish translation or believe in doing the job manually, once you understand the limitation of the former, you can use it better, making it a valuable tool for learning a new language and maximize your learning experience at the same time.
