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.
He assisted as proof-reader in Martin Luther's work of translating the Bible (1522–1545) into the German language. He also served as Luther's secretary. In 1537, John Frederick I, Elector of Saxony exempted him from his ecclesiastical duties and officially commissioned him to work with the documentation of Luther's work. In this capacity, Rörer became one of the editors of Luther's Tischreden ("table talk") as well as a collected edition of Luther's works. He moved to Copenhagen in 1551 and to Halle in 1553.
