This depends on many factors such as the translation program, the type of translation, the grammar of the document to be translated, the use of a specialty dictionary or glossary, among other factors. The quality of the engine of the translation program and the size of its dictionary are usually the most important factors. Generally, you can expect draft-quality translations: the result can be readily understood, but will need editing and correction for professional use. Again, a professional translator or firm should be used for demanding or mission-critical applications such as legal or literary work.
