In modern times, the number and variety of machine translation technologies are increasing day by day. Currently, there are many translation programs that translate text of any topic from one language to another. The translation made by the programs that compare the various words, sentences, phrases and idioms in their memory during the translation process and find their more appropriate equivalents in the translation language to the source language is considered as a higher quality translation. However, such translation programs are mostly universal programs. In addition to such universal programs, there are also advanced translation programs for translation of some specific field. Each user can choose any among these programs that suits his interests and goals.

Of course, all these programs have advantages as well as weaknesses. In our research, the advantages and disadvantages of the most popular translation programs of recent years have been tried to be revealed. A translator who examines these advantages and disadvantages will be able to make a better decision when choosing the translation program he needs. In addition, a detailed analysis of machine translation technologies was made in the research and necessary information about these technologies was given. The research can serve as a database for both translators and researchers in the field of machine translation.
