The statement "so you know they are precise with it" is not backed up
by any evidence. I've used Google translate for a while now and
realise it does make some errors especially in the more difficult
languages, do you have any evidence to suggest that Bing translation
is any better than Google translation?

Does anyone else on the list have any evidence either way?
