A number of topics start to see translation software as a threat to human interpreters and translators. I have another point of view: it promotes human capability with more productivity e.g. for speaking, writing, transcribing.
It is ironic that I also use software to study new languages in a number of ways since software is accurate and it never becomes weary when human does.
