Google Translate also comes with the option of editing and suggestions. Users can suggest or edit any translation mistakes that occur due to the software. This update may be accepted by Google after careful review. As the software is strictly not a translating software which depends on the actual language but a Google made algorithm, it cannot adhere to the conventional rule-based translation of language. The Google algorithm uses a set of statistical charts and analyses the source language in accordance and also displays the result as an analysis. It is basically statistical machine translation and not the conventional word by word translation, but it does seem to work in most cases. It is also known that Google Translate first changes most of the languages into English and then starts translating them in the source language if it is any other than English. For some languages like Haitian, Korean, Slovak, Ukrainian and Urdu there is a different intermediate language that Google uses before translating them.
