Conflicting translations

Hi Kwiziq

I utilise many different resources to learn French (including Kwiziq) and at least 2 translator apps - Reverso and French English Translator which check my French words and grammar to verify my learning, before I speak, write or read.  However, I often find these 2 apps give me different answers for the same phrases.    In this particular Kwizik test, I became frustrated because some of my answers were marked incorrect, despite my research before taking the test.  

Do you have any suggestions on which translator is the most reliable and one that Kwizik recommends?   I am a Premium Kwizik member and enjoy your model of teaching, however, I need to find a reliable translator.

Thank you.

Regards Jo

Bonjour Jo,

Kwiziq cannot recommend a reliable online translator. This has been discussed previously here too: Reliable Online Full-Text Translation

However, could you give us the answers (and the exercise link) you were given as "incorrect" by Kwizbot please? It would help us to check if potential options are missing and/or explaining why you were marked as such.

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

First, I want to caution against using translator apps. They are a valuable resource but should always be taken with a big grain of salt. That said, I find ChatGPT by far the most reliable one.
