Going back to Babel, I guess Apr 20

Sure, multilingual internet would be wonderful--really something to look forward to, as long as there is no automatic machine translation of anything, and users are advised that MT is on the whole very inaccurate, so they should do more work on their own. Otherwise it will be another variety of Babel--total misunderstanding among people, on a massive scale. Multilingual internet would be wonderful for language learning purposes.

I'm sure SDL and others know about this Apr 20

For us individual translators, this news is useless, unactionable, unprofitable. Let's stop daydreaming.
