Ná bain úsaid as google translate i gcomhair aistriúchán Gaeilge/Dont use google to translate irish

Google translate is useless for Irish. http://www.focal.ie/ & http://www.focloir.ie/ provide much better translations.Focloir.ie also provides a pronunciation in three accents/dialects ( Connacht ,Ulster) only use google as a last resort.

Pro tip: don't use Google Translate if you're planning on getting a tattoo in Irish. Or any other language.

You'd be surprised how many people don't know this vital piece of information.


Oh goodness. I had forgotten how bad that was. There's also this article, for more examples


I've been reporting this error for four years now and they still haven't fixed it!

I doubt there's anyone tending to the system.


Jesus, the grammar isn't even half correct. I only use google translate for single words, if ever.


Tá sé beagnach greanmhar :/

Excellent example of another google translate fail


my point exactly


The only reason I ever use Google Translate is for pronunciation, and they don't even have it for Irish.
