This article presents the first results of a qualitative research study on writing in a foreign language with the help of Google Translator. The article examines the processes of rendering, that is, the construction of verbal and discursive forms expressed during group discussion on the translation of a tourist website. This study took place in the 2013/2014 academic year, and it was based on a video recording of about 12 hours of group work by four students while planning and producing a draft of the German translation of the homepage of an Italian tourist site. The work highlights both the advantages and disadvantages of the use of an online translation resource by students with basic knowledge of a foreign language.
