How accurate are machine translations?

According to a 2016 study on the accuracy of machine translations, the average modern, browser-based translation software was 3x more likely to make mistakes when translating between major languages
(English, Spanish, Chinese, etc.) than human translators.

These tools have certainly come a long way, but even the study makes it clear that international businesses should use human translators, as machines might even offend speakers of the target language.
