BBC News – Google Translate ‘turns interpreter’ with voice function

Tee hee.Here is google’s next failure. After years of research, not to mention billions of dollars wasted, we now are presented with an app that tells us that “poulet” is French for “chicken” and that French waiters are incredibly patient with English speaking punters (natch !)

And to really undermine the whole project, the hapless sap from google says that”often the hardest thing about another language is the pronun….pronoun-ciation.”

Quite. The spirit of Monty Python lives on.
