\"Efforts to design software that can translate languages fluently have encountered a problem: how do you program common sense?\"


A very interesting article in the Atlantic Monthly, Digital Edition:

more on MT and online translation Jan 16, 2003

looking for the new URL for Globalink, I found

http://www.openinternetlexicon.com/contents.html !

read from \"Machine Translation\" onwards!

and a page with lots of links on Italian language (but now I\'ve seen that most of them are useless or don\'t work, which alas! is typical for links on Italian):

Great Article Jan 16, 2003

What it proves once more is that the subject of translation with his/her desire cannot be programmed. That\'s why machine translation does not work. The subject of translation is who is doing the work. That gives us much to ponder philosophically. At least, I thinkso.
