its mechanism is similar to Google Translate because it is based on machine learning as well;

it’s totally automatic without any manual interruptions.

although google’s translation can do translation for many languages while baidu only support english and chinese for now.


Let’s see some trials and the comparisons to human translation and Google Translate

We noticed that Baidu can recognize both Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese as the source text while only translate English into Simplified Chinese as the target language.

Google Translator can now automatically detect the source language, and translate 63 languages​​, in addition, can also use Google global business insight put ads in all languages​​.

It was said Baidu will have a bilingual view, however I could not find the English view of this service.

Baidu was reported to be supported by the cooperation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a project has applied for state funds to support tens of millions, and has developed two years, now also part of the trial operation stage. Specific effects also need to use third-party evaluation and user feedback.
