Off topic: Impressive iPhone software
Thread poster: Marek Daroszewski (MrMarDar)
I just came across this short film about an impressive (IMHO) iPhone application.
I have not visted the site promoted on the film itself as I have no interest in EnglishSpanish translations nor an iPhone for that matter.
I do, however, see ample market opportunities for such products, especially in the tourism industry.
I think we all would appreciate comments from people who actually have this piece of software and could confirm it works as on the film.
All the best,
PS. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but have not found anything like 'Future of the Translation Industry'. Naturally, moderators are free to put this thread in a more appropirate place.

the few English translations shown in the clip leave something to be desired... they are literal and the word order faulty.

In the examples they give, despite the incorrectness of the translations, there is little room for ambiguity, but I am sure that there will be translations which are incorrect to the point of being dangerous. I imagine they will have covered their backs with appropriate disclaimers!

Many of the source and target texts they show in the video are wrong. They need to hire a linguist!

If you have no internet connection your resources will be limited. A reasonably sized multi-language dictionary needs lots of memory.
