Sharing Google Docs, or using online translation tools and calculators, are just a few ways that technology helps when creating your own piece of scholarship or other type of work.

Language Translation Tools: Language translation tools, such as Google Translate, can be helpful in certain situations for language classes. As mentioned above, instructors have varying policies on how you can use this kind of tool. At minimum, you should be aware of what translation tools can do. They do not work well for translating extensive amounts of text. In many cases they will work just fine for providing an adequate translation of a single word or a two or three word long phrase (serving the role of bilingual dictionary), but they will not work for anything longer than that.
