Having experimented quite a bit with web-based machine translation I think
that is most unwise.

However; it might not be a bad idea to use a machine-based translation 
first, and then follow
it up by proper checking / style-editing / remedial translation by 
somebody who is fully
functional in both English and the target language. This would save a 
certain amount of time.

-----------------------------

Бански Старец (a type of Bulgarian salami) = "bathing old man" (Google 
translate)

this is because a "бански костюм" is a swimsuit, and a "старец" is an 
old man.

Quod erat demonstrandum (Latin) = "which was to be" (Google again) real 
meaning"

"which had to be demonstrated"

Loadsa rubbish.
