Just found that Google now translates from Polish to English and English to Polish.

Whatever you think of automatic translations it may be usefull for those who know very little or no Polish.

I've found it useful it to tanslate from Italian to English, at least to know what a web site might be about.

But is it any good?

I have seen translation devices that translate word-for-word with everything in dictionary form (nominative, present tense, masculine, blah blah blah).

It's seems to be pretty good, as eagle20 says, it's good for people with little knowledge of Polish. I notice that Google toolbar still doesn't support Polish, it would be a handy option

I don't know why I ask if it's any good, as I don't know how to use google.

To access Google translation got to

google.co.uk/language_tools?hl=en

Type into box words to translate, below where it says "Translate text".

Select languages in drop down boxes e.g. Polish - English

Ah you must have used the Polish to OLD English translator.

Forsooth this technology doth baffle me somewhat

I just wanted to check something pgtx had translated for me earlier.
This is English:
Pije himself cold and Tyskie slucham muzyczki, so do not ask me zebym podniosl dupe and whatever robil

I decided to add some Polish letters, and I got this:
Pije consecutive cold Tyskie and listen muzyczki, so do not ask me zebym podniosl dupe and anything done.

Ja pitnej a nice butelka Tyskie i słuchając niektórych utworów, więc nie pytaj mnie o moich arse wysiąść i zrobić coś!

kocham cie - i love thee

lubie pluszowe misie - hate toy bears (!!!!!!?)

Using Polish characters

kocham cię - love you

lubię pluszowe misie - I like toy bears
