Best japanese translator ?

Post by Xavier » 03 Jan 2020, 09:32

Hi,
Just wondering, is there any good translator for japanese to english ?
Please, don't tell me Google Translate, we all know about its poor translation quality :)

How about Systran, Babylon, or Bing ? are they accurate ? Or one of these maybe better ? It would be nice to have some hints from someone who really speaks japanese :D

From all I've heard any of the automatic translations can only be a first draft for a real human translator to work on. (There was a congress about that recently in Berlin.)

「私はgoogle頼みで他のサイトを使った事がありませんでした。
試してみます。」を翻訳してみました。

[Bing]
I had never used any other site on google request.
I'll give it a try.

--Wrong meaning.

[Babylon]
I ask google and other sites did not have a thing.
Try It.

--Wrong meaning.

[SYSTRAN]
I never used another site on google's request.
I'll try.

--Wrong meaning.

[google]
I have never used other sites at google request.
I'll give it a try.

--Wrong meaning.

"Right meaning" is ...
I relied on google, so I have never used other sites.
I will try these.

When I paste into automatic translation, I need to edit the text to make it easier to translate.

Crap :|
Well anyway, thank you for giving it a try.

Do you know any other good system ? I tried to search 日本語翻訳者 英語, but since I don't speak japanese it's hard to sort out the results.

Unfortunately, I have never seen a service that translates Japanese properly.
I do not notice when I usually live in Japan. However, I feel the difficulty of Japanese in this forum.
