The purpose of this paper is to present the comparison of the two of the free online programs for machine translation, Google Translate and Yandex.Translate. Language pairs used in the comparison were English-Croatian and Russian-Croatian. The paper consists of two parts. The first part is theoretical and deals with various aspects of machine translation in general, such as the historical development of machine translation and explanations of different methods used in machine translation. The second part is the analysis of a survey, which was conducted to assess both the quality of the programs in question and machine translation in general. The survey itself was divided into two parts; in the first part the task of the participants was to rate the sentences produced by machine translation according to the categories of adequacy (how much information was transferred between the original and the translation) and fluency (how well was the translation formed in terms of style). The second part brigs the error analysis of selected translated sentences. The purpose of that analysis was to find correlations between error types and general ratings from the survey.
