Thinking of using a computer program for your Document Translation Project?

Welcome in many languages

You might consider that a computer could master human languages if they could just memorise enough rules. Beginning with that idea, programmers have tried to cram artificial translation brains full of vocabulary, grammar, and syntax so that a source document could be rendered into any target language as a matter of simple substitution. The idea that languages can be substituted, one for another, on a more or less word-for-word basis is completely intuitive — and completely wrong.
