IMHO automatic translations into Polish are useless, as they only allow rough orientation in the contents of an article. It concerns  not only translations from Hungarian (in which part of the words whose Polish counterparts were unknown to the automatic translator were left untranslated or translated into English), but even translations from German. (I was trying articles on the children's literature ;-)
