Translation Software offers a variety of features to help you communicate clearly and effectively. However, if translation software does not provide accurate translations, the benefits and advantages diminish greatly. We tested each software product for accuracy by entering the same paragraph, taken from a Spanish version of “Little Red Riding Hood.” For more information on how we tested and weighed the accuracy of each software program, take a look at the article The Translation Test Format.
