Three Common Translation Sites

We will have more and more students enter our doors who may not know any or much of the English language. As teachers, we must get better at using translator sites. Google translator, Yahoo Babelfish, and Microsoft Bing Translator are 3 of the most commonly used translation sites. This link is a link to study done on the "Big 3". Although it shows Bing and Babelfish get better and better as the passage gets longer, I think we need to focus on the Spanish/English translation where Google wins almost every time. For now, I think I will continue to use Google Translate, but am interested to hear what sites you use and how much success you have.
