This type of translation is cheaper as all you use is electric energy of that computer and nothing else as the software or the internet application you use may be already bought or on a project basis and the work delivered is fast. On the other hand, a professional translator uses his literary knowledge and will surely charge way more when compared to Machine Translation.

In many cases, the data/excerpt or that whole work that you need to translate may have such jargon that the machine cannot handle.
