Having to interpret on the spot is a big difference I think we all talked about. Translation can be done word for word with a device, but it is not a good idea. I think we all know it is not a good idea. It may be okay to use it and clean it up afterwards, but I still think that is not ideal. When I have had to translate, sometimes I would put my work into a translator after I already translated to quickly see if I made a mistake or worded something awkwardly. I would have translated something in to my second or third language on my own, and then I would plug it into the translator to translate it into my first language. I called it reverse translation.
