      Hi there,  yes,  I have tried to demonstrate  the general limits of translation tools and dictionaries in class, but am not sure I have convinced many so fat that corpus tools are better, because I have been confused by my own explanations!  (that’s why I’m doing the course).  I’m not surprised students do use translation tools though, and it’s difficult to know how much better some of these tools are actually getting. At some point I think we will need to explore what translation tools are good for because they are not going away.
