I think the answer’s probably going to be no, but I’ll try anyway.
Are there any machine translation (MT) websites or software that do an acceptable job?
Searching here suggests no, but this is technology - it changes so often, so what was impossible 6 months ago may be possible today.
I need something so that I can type in English and get correct Chinese back. Or at least 95% correct. Not pinyin to Chinese. English-Chinese. Simplified characters would be ok, but traditional would be better.
The reason I need it is for a possible business opportunity that requires communication in Chinese, but the Chinese speakers on the other end will give me a bit of leeway, not being a native Chinese speaker, hence the 95% accuracy.
I know, I know - go to school and learn. I would if I could. In fact, I’d love to, but I live in a place that doesn’t have any Chinese schools for foreigners. So I pick up what I can, which doesn’t extend to writing.
Cheers, and happy CNY,
