Top Ten Ways Google Translate is Useless

I had a little thing were I would write a post in a different language using Google Translate. I went back and read through them using Google Translate and it didn't work as well as I imagined going off of that I decided to create a list all about the "wonderful" Google Translate

The Top Ten

1 It gets translations wrong

Sometimes the translations confuse me, but other times it translates words perfectly - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Yes, yes it does. - TheFourthWorld

How is this useless? It taught me what BÌ BÌ SHINGCĀI meant. - Dawscr

That’s why I make “Google Translate Sings” songs! I put lyrics in google translate and see what they change to! For example “I heard you told your friends that I'm just not your type. If that's how you really feel, then why'd you call last night?. You say all I ever do is just control your life. But how you gonna lie like that, how you gonna lie like that? ” Changes to “I told them they were just friends, but animals. If so, why did you name it at night? This is my job that will save your life. How to make your wishes.” It’s hilarious!

2 It only has a select amount of languages

They should add Cantonese

3 It doesn't account for different forms of the language
4 Google Translate is designed for English speakers
5 Google Translate does not account for punctuation
6 Google Translate is a separate app on google play
7 The app doesn't work
8 Its detect language feature is pretty useless

Eh, it's pretty useful for me. Sometimes I don't know what language the foreign word is, so I'll need the "detect language" feature - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

9 Translating a language back will get the wrong translation.

My biggest problem with it, but sometimes the translation can be correct - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

10 It doesn't account for grammar
