Why MT (Machine Translation) can only help

You have for sure tried machine translation services, such as Google language tools or Altavista Babel Fish Translation. If you have not, make a try at one of the two above, and why not comment here about your findings? If your conclusion is :
Machine translation can help
then your are probably looking for a rough translation Microsoft offers also some kind of machine translation for its support pages. See for instance Windows Installer 3.1 is available and its French translation Windows Installer 3.1 est disponible. So Machine Translation helps, but as Microsoft wisely says above "use at your own risk" of mis-understanding the real meaning of the original text. What good uses do you see for Machine Translation?
