When you translate "my mom is cool and nice" to spanish, Google gives: "mi mama es fresca y agradable". Then, when you translate it to english you obtain an error. Why an error? Because Google translate "mom" as "mama"; without the diacritic accent in the last "a". If you translate "mi mamá es fresca y agradable" to english, you will obtain "my mother is fresh and pleasant", that is somewhat similar but not exactly to the original query "my mom is cool and nice".
