What are your favorite online translators?

There are a lot of translators online. What are your favorites? 

I'm using google translator because it's too easy too use & it's translate every language to understandable language....Best translator ever...
Saying Google translate is the best translator is like saying Pizza Hut does the best pizza! I hate to say this but Google translate is not a 'translator' in any conventional sense, it's really a sophisticated multi-language dictionary, wordref.com is the best for 'real' translations. In my not so humble opinion.

babel fish was the best time ago, now is google translate.
But online translators, don't translate it very well, they give a rough translation.
For words and set phrases I use http://www.wordreference.com and it have a good helping forum
http://www.wordreference.com is only for words. For simple sentences, google translate or babelfish is good.
Not strictly true, at wordreference.com you can translate phrases, I just did it with 'Once upon a time' (Il était une fois, había una vez, c'era una volta, etc.) and there are forums where you can research or pose questions answered by other users, so it's much better than google translate if you are interested in a 'serious' translation.

google translate if you need to understand what is about. But not to translate ans send to somebody or to make a post. At least what I try (translation in language I speak and I found that is almost word by word) but for few others was almost fine.

OK, google might be the biggest, but to translate from Dutch to German or vice versa . . . To put it mildly, das stinkt ! To me thats only good to check for spelling, still it's a work in progress, so nevertheless, I do like google translate, because it also makes Latin translations possible, which is quite handy for understanding the history of science.

As a tip:
If you are not sure that the translated text is what you meant, open a second tab and use that to translate back to the original language by cut and past, by doing this back and forth a few times, while making small changes, you can get very close to a result that doesn't change much any more.

For German, Beolingus is a very helpful resource.

I would vote for google translate... I used to use babelfish but with Chrome as my browser it's really so easy... I know this isn't online translation but have a look at this really neat iPhone application using augmented reality to translate on the fly

I generally rock Babelfish when it's one bit of text, Chrome automatically asks to translate webpages to Texan for me :D
