Tips to help the quality of your free translation

The complimentary translation service is performed by a machine rather than a human, which means that inaccuracies may sometimes occur. There are some simple things to keep in mind to help avoid potential confusion when writing the English version of your text.

  • Avoid misspellings and poor grammar
  • Leave a space between sentences to avoid a long, continuous string of text
  • Avoid slang and colloquialisms
  • Avoid abbreviations and acronyms
  • Do not write only in CAPS – use normal sentence case, using upper case for proper nouns such as names and places
  • Avoid unnecessarily long sentences
