In our daily lives we often come across phrases or sentences in a language that is not our own. Unfortunately most English speakers only speak English and so when we come across a word, phrase or sentence that we don't understand we just insert it into an internet search engine and hope for a translation.
If all you are looking for is a single word to be translated then maybe these translation websites can help you. But in the real world a single word won't really get you anywhere and so you need to be able to understand more than just a single foreign word.
