You shouldn't ever use machine translation to localize software; a good translation takes culture, context and other factors in consideration. For instance, I translate Scratch to the Spanish language and at times we've had discussions over what's the best translation for a certain block or word, considering that Scratch's main audience is children and teens.

You can definitely tell when something has been translated with Google – try translating, say, a Russian or Japanese webpage to English and see if you can make sense out of it.
