Google can provide the gist of a message and, in certain cases, come up with a solution. Using it for important conversations or documentations is dangerous because out of context it simply cannot provide an accurate translation.
“A lawsuit between the Hawai’i Department of Transportation and the non-profit organization Faith Action for Community Equity regarding the language translation of driver’s examinations that are required for Hawai’i residents to obtain a license has been settled.”
“There are currently 13 languages that the exams are translated into, making Hawai’i the only state that has fewer than two million people and offers the exam in more than 10 languages. Hawai’i is also the only state to offer the exam in a native language, Hawaiian.”
