    Trying to translate a Korean website and Google Translate just gives me gibberish.

    Exhibit A...
    Can anyone help translate this...

    I know the Loake Bibury is a cheap corrected grain shoe, but for a knockabout shoe in winter, it's interesting.

    "This shoe has rounded last unlike Crockett & Jones, while both of them are from England.

    ... blah blah blah ...

    - I just noticed that Crockett shoes are rounded last by default unlike other British shoes. Except the 348 last, all the lasts are not pointed."

    I'm native Korean speaker but non-native English speaker. You may need English-to-English translation. :D

    One tip for Korean translation is that you may get better results by translating Korean to Japanese first then translating Japanese to English.

    Lots of people try to translate Japanese anime into Korean and also English. Because of that, Google has more data between Japanese and Korean, also between Japanese and English. Japanese can be used as a bridge between these two extremely different languages.
