Anyone know of a good online translator, from English to Russian?

I'm trying to Russianize (is that a word?) my site.

For the most part, I've being using Google to translate. But at times, Google is 100% wrong - at best, I would give it 50% accuracy. Then there's there's the grammar to contend with.

I've purchased some translating software in the past (PROMT was the latest), but it too was wrong a lot of the time, and a memory hog.

Just curious if anyone has come across a half-decent online translator.

Thanks in advance.

As a translator by profession I feel, that no Machine Translation is suitable for this job. It must be done by a human translator, preferably a genealogist too, maybe helped by dictionaries, Google Translate and CAT (Computer Assisted Translation tool. That is a database of sentences that was translated before).

And even then you may encounter interesting (read: completely wrong) translations at times.

This is not meant as an offer to do the job, because it is up to now not known, when my Russian may start to develop. Frankly spoken, I think it never will :-)
