Is the Ukrainian audio translation on Google Translator correct? Is the pronunciation good?

I wrote this question on Quora a little while ago but then remembered there is a discussion here :)

I want to start doing more reading in Ukrainian to acquire more vocabulary and such but also improve my listening skills at the same time. There are few sources which offer Ukrainian reading material along with audio but I feel Google translator will help with texts and dialogues where no audio is available.

Thank you for reading :)

Взагалі, Гугл має дуже гарну і чисту українську вимову. Я перевірив це. Думаю, ним можна користуватися для вивчення Української фонетики. Однак, переклад не завжди хороший.

In general, Google has a very nice and pure Ukrainian pronunciation. I checked it out. I think you can use it to study Ukrainian phonetics. However, the translation is not always good.

дуже дякую)) Thank you for answering. I really appreciate it. I am glad to know it sounds nice and pure as I hoped it would) Fortunately there are some good Ukrainian dictionaries for written words when Google translation can't be of any help to me. I wish you the best with your language learning and have a nice evening :)

Google badly translates sentences and texts only, single words it translates normally and it shows all the options of translate.

Also Google learns: I have surprised that it have translated 'скопіпастив' - that word was created from English words 'copy'+'paste'.

Thank you for this. Google will be helpful even if it's just for Ukrainian phonetics but it's nice to know it translates single words as well) I suppose it can be fine for just giving a very general meaning of a text.

Lingovsoft and CyberMova seem good at translating single words too.

Скопіпастив всю цю сторінку в Гугл і був здивований - дійсно нормально читає. На відміну від перекладу.
