Questions on specific points regarding translating Chinese. Do your own research first!

Translation questions are not for asking things that you could answer yourself by looking into a dictionary or doing a simple search on the internet – this is not a translation service. When you ask a question like this, please show that you've already done some research, and explain what else you need to know.

For example, this is a good translation question and this is a bad translation question.

Unfortunately automatic translation tools aren't perfect, but Google Translate has become pretty good for Chinese-English and English-Chinese. Simple sentences are usually translated with good accuracy.
