A Very Bad Example For Internet Business Site

Internet is a good resource for everything, everyone can find something they needed, learning, research, doing business, even just for entertainment. But internet also has lots of wrong informations. Today, I found a website while I am surfing online, it called Magnetpages. It looks like a business site that offers translation of web page. I know internet is a good platform to do business, but most important thing is how can you attract customers? I think most important thing is build a good website first.

Let's back to original subject. Magnetpages says it can translate company website to foreign languages, like Chinese, Japanese, German, Spanish with real live translators, it promised. But it offered a sample of translation (Chinese) that is terrible, this translation looks like machine, Google Translator is also doing that way. Take a look this screenshot below, yellow highlight marked parts are terrible.

Fortunately, I know about Chinese but I don't understand what this translation is. I don't understand why a professional translation company have to use machine translation.

I can't see machines taking over the jobs of human translators in the near future, as they have done with so many other professions (remember telephone operators?)
These machine translators are ok when all u need is a quick understanding of a some rather simple text, but if you are running a business, or otherwise depend on accuracy of a translation, using professional translation services is the only way to go.
