Congratulations, @LanguageWire for the acquisition of FrontLab https://t.co/0mgkeu4pEm. This will bring you a notch up in the #Nimdzi100 next year
@erik_hansson @xl8_ttns Fortunately, dysentery-related deaths among translators continue trending downward... #progress
@Authentik_se One day AI will be able to respond to twitter posts too but until then I have to wholeheartedly agree with you myself. 😉
@integlangsbiz Perhaps... Or... it might make sense to read the full blog! 😉
@integlangsbiz Oh Gosh no... we look closer at such things in the article... “However, it still has a long way to go, and some argue that no matter how advanced this algorithmic technology becomes, it will never be able to fully replace the human voice.”
@integlangsbiz We are interested MT. We are interested in humans. We are interested in how the two relate to each other. It is obvious what the machine thinks of the human (it doesn’t), but fascinating to look at what the human thinks of the machine. Don’t you think?
