Google Translate occasionally says something right. But most of the time it is ungrammatical or even complete nonsense. You can tell instantly when somebody is using it.

Have you ever tried using it to translate to English? It’s useful if you get an email or are reading a website in a language you don’t know. It can translate enough words for you to understand what the message is trying to say. But it isn’t anything like English as spoken by a human.

In fact maybe you should try that. Grab some French text from somewhere and translate into English using Google Translate. See what you think of the result and whether you would want that as representing your words.
