Default Google Translate vs Bing Translator

The homepage of 7-PDF Maker is written in German.

I don't understand German. So I sometimes use Google Translate or Bing Translator to translate a page online.

From this line: "Laden Sie noch heute 7-PDF Maker - Freeware Edition - für Windows herunter!"

Google Translate:
And upload 7-PDF maker - Freeware Edition - Windows Download!

Bing Translator:
Download 7 PDF Maker - Freeware Edition - for Windows today!

Apparently Bing Translator does a better job for this line.

But there's a small paragraph in the same homepage written in English.
7-PDF Maker is a freeware PDF Creator for Windows. The 7-pdf website is currently only availabe in german.

Google Translate is smart enough to just copy it over.
7-PDF Maker is a freeware PDF Creator for Windows. The 7-pdf website is currently only availabe in german.

Bing Translator makes a mistake to change the word "german" to "English" in the translated page.

Still going to mainly use Google Translate, unless Bing Translator has a bookmarklet (or userscript, preferably not Firefox extension or IE anything).
