Where can I find a site to translate German?

Where can I find a place to translate German?

Search on google or here under foreign languages click german.

Here is one translation website, but be careful -- machine translators are often inaccurate.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Trust us on this one! Translation sites are so stilted, incorrect and will NEVER get the nuances of a language! Besides that fact, you will NOT learn a language with a translation site!

Here is how to use a dictionary. Take the English word you want in German and "walk" it through ALL these steps with a good bilingual dictionary. 1. Look for all the German translations and write those down. 2. Take each German word and look that up for the primary, secondarly, terciary meaning in English. 3. Now select the best translation, depending upon the context, and post what you have done for someone competent in German to proofread it for you. You need to pay attention to the part of speech, word order, etc. There is NO SHORTCUT to good learning!

Post it here. If it isn't too long, my wife and I can help you. I do the easy ones; she is a native speaker.

One of the machine sites not mentioned is

It is better than babelfish, but still pretty bad.
