Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
In July 2010, Google announced that they had been working with Hindi Wikipedians to translate English language articles into Hindi and had so far (since 2008) translated 600,000 words in Hindi using a combination of Google Translate and manual checking. This coordinated translation has been responsible for a 20% rate of growth and counting for the site.
As of 2013 (and considering statistics since 2007), January to May 2008 is the only period in which the Hindi Wikipedia experienced multiple consecutive months with two-figures growth (in number of words), bringing it from 1.7 to 2.8 millions words.
