Re: Don't speak English, French or ...

I read somewhere that Moscow Uiversity was experimenting with computer translations 30 years ago. To check the accuracy they would enter an english phrase, translate to Russian and then back to English to see if it matched.

They entered "Out of sight, out of mind". it came back as "invisible idiot".
