Some teachers find online translators good for converting their directions or worksheets to meet the ESL student’s needs. Others are against online translators because they do not convert text accurately in a conversational tone.

However we should not allow that issue to hinder us in our attempt in communicating in the classroom or online. I currently use Google’s language tool to convert my pages online (as long as I can identify the language I am converting).

My challenge to you is to try translating a twitter web page that is not in English or send a tweet to me (@mrich1911) in Bulgarian!
