Absolutely.

All CX users must be encouraged to do this. Translation is done by humans.
That's the whole point. Content Translation is not a machine translation
tool. It's an article creation tool, which includes optional machine
translation for some language pairs. The Content Translation user interface
has three warning messages that discourage publishing unedited machine
translation,[2][3][4] and several of CX FAQs address this as well.[1]

If a user publishes an unedited machine translation, it should be handled
just like any other problematic page: it must be edited, moved to a draft,
or deleted, and the creating user should be warned.
