They work kind of fair to middling. I speak fairly good spanish,
but I use them when I want to be sure that what I am saying is
correct (I have a lot of problems with past and future tenses).
I am fine in the present. Sometimes they can really screw up a
Here is a fun thing to do to see what they are capable of:
Type out a paragraph or so into the translation text box.
Translate it into spanish. Now translate it back into english.
You will see just how accurate they are. If you really want to
have some fun, translate it into spanish, then into french, then

certainly a boost to the design side, especially without climbing an Everest
sized learning curve.
if the only thing you need is a picture or face frame use "paint" it
should e prenstaled into your computer
but if you want exact to scale software would do
PLAN B:make a "toscale" modle out of thin easy to work with 'balsa'-
who knows theat option may be a great proj. in it self
