In Wikipedia (where I enjoy reading again and again), a number of aspects are to be taken into account to translate poems. I understand that machines can handle these more efficiently than men e.g. number of word counts per line, intonation, pause and acceleration of lyric styles.

Today, they barely manage to translate very simple sentences correctly. How they dare feel that they are ready to tackle poetry?

Well, at least in poetry all mistakes can be assigned to the "style resource" category...icon_smile.gif
