It's worthy to learn another language??
I think yes, but perhaps in the future I change my mind.....

A couple of corrections:
An interesting article (in Spanish) saying that a program, translating at three different stages (each word alone, as text and as conversation) has achieved good performance. ... Is it worthwhile to learn another language??
I think so, but perhaps in the future I'll change my mind.


This is a very interesting article indeed. I would love to see a "machine translation" that knocks the socks off what we have now. Perhaps we'll see that happen, if this latest technology turns out to be as good as they say it is. However, I don't personally believe that a machine will ever be able to replace us translators. We will always be needed.
You can't take the human element out of language.
