If you need to have a phrase translated you could go to:



http://translate.google.com/translate_t



So:

I entered:

\"Vor dieser Maßnahme, den Stecker unbedingt aus der Steckdose ziehen.\"



There is still some time left!

This my lets hope Jan 25, 2003

Oh dear, surely we have some time.

The question left is, how much time?

If I think some years back, what computers could do, and what they can do today...



Well, but they will possibly never be able to \"feel\" the language - but real translating does mean exactly this. It is not enough to understand every word and to put those words in the right order in the target language. Translator must \"feel\" what the autor wishes to say, then and only then he will be able to put down the autors thaughts in ther target language.



Thank you for this example, Mats



Have a nice weekend



Jerzy

Very nice, Mats! Jan 25, 2003

This really made me smile and confirmed my decision against buying any translation software (although I am sure that there are better ones than google).

Lets all keep up the good work!

Have a nice Sunday
