Does online or machine translator translates well?

After more research and analysis, I want to preface this whole thing by saying that doing language translation by a machine put you into the trouble.

As in my analysis, I found so many reviews on blog post. The general consensus is that online translation tools do fast translation and also I do agree with this. This is rubbish if the translation tool does not translate well in terms of their essences of the sentence.

So, what's different about online Translation tools other than the previous attempts at machine translation? The biggest is that some online translation tools collects data from the search engine to cull human-supplied translation bits and add those to its existing translation algorithms.

As per the Search and analysis I found that many online translation tools translate same sentence differently and does not make any sense.  Here is some translation results of online tools and manual translation:

Input Online Tools Output Manual
I am Santosh. मैं संतोष कर रहा हूँ। मैं संतोष हूँ |
It was bound to love. यह प्यार ही था| प्यार तो होना ही था |
Let me go in the middle. मुझे बीच में चलते हैं| मुझे बिच में जाने दो |

At the end of this analysis you can see that here is much difference in between actual meaning and output by online translation tool.

So this is really informative. I need to admit that I was truly diffident when I attempted to out of it. Much the same as every other machine translators on the planet, on the off chance that you endeavor to utilize an online translation tool to gather significance from a web page or from a paragraph or even a single sentence, you're probably screwed. The initial three sentences I have in the outline demonstrate that while verbs and things are interpreted appropriately, you really lose a meaning and connection in translation. 

Someday this won't matter and we'll all have universal translators with us. It also doesn't matter much because, as Hollywood has shown us over again and again, all aliens from far and distant worlds speak English. Online translation or Machine translation is not faithful as well as not has fidelity to the original source. it cannot convey the source in target as it leads to mistranslation.
