You realize nothing ever translates back completely into the intended version with translation software, right? There is a lot of value to be gained in using the software to help guide the words, but then using a good Spanish-English dictionary (I like the American Heritage version) to really make sure the nuances are correct. Some things just don't translate exactly. I also use an online program that uses three different translation  softwares. The value in this is that often will pick up on idiom better than the other, and by comparing the three translations, I can often piece together something that "feels" closer to what I want to say. It is labor-intensive, but until I consider myself fluent, I consider this my best method.

As for pajaro vs paloma; I think you did this right. Little songbirds are pajaros; and "doves" can have a sexual overtone that you may not intend.
