22222 Automatic tools do not work!


The tool is unsatisfactory for even relatively simple Latin sentences, and is further evidence that the world is very far off obtaining a reliable automatic translation for Latin. I still advise students and researchers to go to (human) professionals. Google 'Professional Latin translator' and you get various sites that help (e.g. Classical Turns in the U.K.). I have also heard that Google Translate, which now has Latin, is extremely unreliable for anything over one word.

33333 Translator Review


The translator cannot deal with sophisticated strings of Latin, and it is hard to use it as anything beyond a one-word dictionary. For translations of sentences and anything longer, online translators continue not to work, and (human) professional help needed. A few such sites exist, like 'Classical Turns', although you have to pay for help.

The latin translator is actually not that bad, although you have to put in a few words, the translations come out ok.
