  1. I was wondering that the subtitle edit has a feature of subtitle translation to any language and it uses Google translate to do it

    but is it accurate??

    The reason i am asking this is because i downloaded an anime with english subs and then after two hours i see the same anime with French SUBS

    I ASKED THEM why they release a bit late. they said it takes time to translate the subs to FRENCH ( I Figured they dont use the subtitle edit Translate feature as it takes only 1 min to translate the .srt file to Any Language )

    Sorry For Bad English

    Are you serious?

    Translation requires a level of expertise computers have not yet mastered. I'd say we are 20 years away from that. And 50 years away from being found obsolete, but that is another discussion.

    In my opinion, no. Online translators are okay for casual work, I guess... but if it's important or even critical, you're far better off using a human native speaker/translator.

    For example (and I hope this displays correctly), here's what Google Translate does to your post when I had it translate to Japanese, then back to English:

    Japanese:
    私は字幕編集はあらゆる言語に字幕翻訳の機能があり、それはGoogleがそれを行うに変換する使用してい ることを疑問に思っていた

    それは正確である?

    私は英語の潜水艦でアニメをダウンロードしてから2時間後、私はフランス人SUBSと同じアニメを見るので 、私はこれを求めていた理由は、

    彼らは少し遅れをリリースなぜ私は彼らに尋ね。彼らはそれが(私は、彼らはそれが唯一の1分を取るように任 意の言語へ.SRTファイルを変換するために字幕編集機能を翻訳使用していけない考え出し)フランス語に潜 水艦を翻訳する時間がかかると述べ

    悪い英語のため申し訳ありません

    The translation feature isn't accurate at all,it just does a simple word translation without the nuances of the language in given text so it comes out bad,for example:The moon rose over the horizon->floating the moon used the skyline over.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.
