Can Google Translate understand language better than humans?

with one comment

Google

I read with interest an article in Slate about Google Translate. It is a very good article that raises questions about computer ability to translate “natural language” like humans.

As a translator myself, I have been using Google Translate a lot and sometimes its translation even surprised me especially for simple sentences and simple conversations. On the other hands, it has difficulty in complex sentences. But for me it is good enough and I am using it a lot to read twitter postings from all over the world.
