I don't believe that one should rely one hundred percent on an automatic online translation software because it is incapable of translating a concept. However, such service can be very useful at times. Google Translate is an example of such service; it now offers translation from and to 57 languages, including the latest addition of Armenian, Azerbaijani, Basque, Georgian, and Urdu languages. And although I would not blindly rely on its translation of legal documents or any other important documents per se, it does help to get at least an idea about what a document, paragraph, or a website is about.
