Google translate thinks a Polish car is a baby? Bing example.

Google Translate generally does a pretty decent job at translating Polish->English. Generally, but not always!
Try: Auto jest teraz u mojego taty.
Google: Baby is now at my dad.

On the other hand
Auto jest teraz w serwisie.
becomes a more reasonable
Car is now on the site.

I guess the translation auto=baby in induced by the context of the 1st sentence, notably because of the word "dad". But... can autoever mean baby in Polish???? Where does google take it from?

I can't see what your problem is. I just typed the sentence 'Auto jest u mojego taty' and google gave me a decent translation...

Are you trying to by a maluch? :)

Maybe there were some recent searches for cars, or polish cars, or cars for sale... Google is scary.

It depends if you use capital A and lowercase a. Writing "Auto..." the translation is baby, but as jump_bunny showed above "auto..." you get car.

That's it! Very singular, isn't it? (BTW, I find google translate just amazing. Automatic translation has always been a hugely difficult problem but now it's really beginning to become useful!)

google translate is great into English... and it's getting better at translating from English.

As a general rule, Google Translate is terrible at translating to Polish. When in doubt, assume the output is very wrong. It may be technically understandable if you pronounce it right, but that's playing Russian Roulette with your documents.

PONS is highly recommended in translating polish.
