Lost In Translation With MeGlobe

MeGlobe is a web based chat application that allows you to send instant message with real time translation. It supports about 15 languages. When I first saw this server I thought that is cool. It can translate your language into other one after you sent. You can pick a language that you want translated. Actually, it just use a robot to do this job. Maybe it uses Google Translate, or other one. I know translation is not easy, especially for robot translation. You only guess about meaning while a robot translate something.

I am not impress for this service, I was a little disappointed about translation quality. But have something is better than nothing. If you want talk to someone who speak another language maybe it can helps you a little.

Thank you for reviewing MeGlobe! We understand that Machine Translation isn't perfect which is why we allow our users to make edits to the translations.
