The Google Translator

Slashdot | Coming Soon, The Google Translator: "Google gave journalists a glimpse of its next generation machine translation system at a May 19th Google Factory Tour." - A great publicity stunt from Google... and, as always in the MT world, it's 95% done. Let's hope Google (which needs billions of words in parallel corpora) or some other company (that doesn't need parallel corpora) start carving something out of that 5% left there for decades. Looking at these patents, it doesn't seem a very crowded field.
