It generates utter nonsense 50% of the time, other 50% it is barely
understandable, or at least ambiguous.
This goes into both directions, English -> foreign and foreign -> English.
This was one of the reasons, why I at least cat read/write English.

I wouldn't do so. This may cause more harm, than the potential good that you
may gain from it.
