    In any case, Skype's Translator and its rivals have some way to go before they can match the abilities of a skilled human linguist. You would not want them involved in vital negotiations between world leaders for example. But over the next decade, you can expect to chat to friends whose language you don't share without stopping to flick through a dictionary.

    Just at first glance, and without looking it up on Google Translate, what is the difference between these two passages of a recent important Vatican document, the final “Relatio” from October’s Extraordinary Synod of Bishops? “…confronto alla luce del Signore Gesů per discernere le vie con cui rinnovare la Chiesa e la societŕ nel loro impegno per la famiglia fondata sul matrimonio tra uomo e donna.” and “…facing the situation, with an eye on the Lord Jesus, to discern how the Church and society can renew their commitment to the family.” A little pared down, perhaps?

    What's In a Name? So asked a William Shakespeare character. Apparently a great deal. When we meet someone for the first time their name is one of most important bits of information about them we receive as it provides an identifier to the mental image of the person. In some cultures a name was also supposed to tell something of the person's character or even future life as in the case of Jesus and the name "Emanuel". God was now 'with' the nation or acting in a special way as evidenced by the presence of His messiah. Which brings us...

    Ever since the Protestant Revolt in the 16th century, the Catholic Church has been accused of ignoring, opposing, hiding and even destroying the Bible in order to keep it from the people. Allegedly, copies of the Bible were chained to the walls of churches during the Middle Ages so that people could not take them home to read. Supposedly the Church during the Middle Ages also refused to translate the Bible into the various tongues of the common people, the vernacular languages, in order to further hinder personal Bible reading. Furthermore it is claimed that the Church even went as...

    CNN said it did not mistranslate Iranian President Hassan Rowhani’s comments about the Holocaust to make him sound more moderate during a Tuesday interview with Christiane Amanpour, contradicting a report that ran in Iran’s state-run news agency. According to the government-run Fars News service, CNN mistranslated Rowhani’s statements and downplayed his suggestion that the Holocaust was not an historical fact. CNN told the Washington Free Beacon that the translator who worked on the interview was actually hired by the Iranian government. According to the Fars News translation of Rowhani’s CNN interview, the Iranian president did not use the term “Holocaust,”...

    Although Joseph Smith said God had pronounced the completed translation of the plates as published in 1830 correct, many changes were made in later editions. There are at least 3,913 changes, and not all of them minor or merely grammatical. The LDS Church suggests that the changes are unimportant, but actual examination does not bear this out, especially when one considers that the Golden Plates were supposedly translated letter-by-letter by the power of God (H. of C. 1, pp. 54-55). Spelling or grammatical errors are one thing, but changes in doctrine and errors in consistency and common sense are quite...

This prima facie evidence was available to our government on September 12th, Benghazi time and September 11th, U.S. EDT. If there is evidence of pre-planning or coordination in either the video itself, or in the spoken word of the terrorists, it would be obvious that our government has either been lying to us all along...

    Following criticism from many quarters and official rebuke from the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), Wycliffe Bible Translators and its primary implementing partner, SIL International, issued new guidelines in August saying familial language for God should normally be maintained in the text of Bible translations. SIL convened an August meeting in Istanbul for translators and consultants to set standards. They then released a best practices statement that reaffirms belief in the eternal deity of Jesus Christ and says, "Scripture translations should promote understanding of the term 'Son of God' in all its richness, including his filial relationship with the Father,...

    Whether your knowledge of the New Testament is passing or deep, the overarching narrative is most likely familiar: Born to the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, son of God and man, is sent to save humanity through his crucifixion, death and resurrection. Such is the foundation of all Christianity. Yet suddenly, a slew of true believers are arguing for a reconsideration of the Gospels — and the Old Testament — based on the predicate forever cited by atheists: The Bible doesn’t make any sense.

Hoffman reports that the commandment commonly quoted as "thou shalt not covet" is more accurately translated as "do not take," and that the commandment applies only to actions, not to states of mind. "We now know that the Ten Commandments take no position on how you feel, only on what you do," he says. Hoffman claims that flawed translation techniques led to the familiar but inaccurate...

    This June, at the meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in Los Angeles, the bishops will vote on the first English translations of the new Roman Missal, released four years ago -- the third “typical edition” of the Missal since the Second Vatican Council. There are two “Liturgy action items”: 1)Voting on the English translation of the Order of Mass, preceded by voting on proposed amendments to this text; and 2) A list of adaptations, proposed by the Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy as additions to the Missal for the United States.The voting procedures are complex and,...

    I’m reading a pretty funny book entitled Once Upon an Elephant by Ashok Mathur which is a pretty funny story about Shiva, Parvati and Ganesh told as a modern detective tale. It has some small portions in various Indian languages that aren’t translated. You don’t really need to know what they say for the story to work but you do miss a bit of the humor. Any chance you can translate any of this? A detective tells an obnoxious TV journalist who is trying to blame the slayings on South Asian gangs to greet Hindus as follows when seeking their...

    The American Thinker ^ | 13th December 2005 | Nidra Poller
    In the aftermath of November’s street fighting, French opinion-makers have pounced on an expiatory victim: philosopher Alain Finkielkraut, a man of integrity who seeks to shed light on events as they happen.  His intelligent analysis of, in his words, the “pogrom against the Republic,” [1] conveyed in an interview with two journalists from Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, has triggered an explosion of intellectual violence against his person, his ideas, his thought process, his very existence. A dishonest patchwork of excerpts from the Haaretz interview, deliberately slanted to make Alain Finkielkraut look like a Le Pen in philosopher’s clothing, was published in the leading French newspaper Le...

    Hi Friends, I shall try to translate some excerpts of the Arabic piece that I posted. It is difficult to translate, though, due to the flamboyant and florid style so typical of traditional Arabic prose. So, I must admit that the translation is going to try to convey meaning rather than literal equivalents of the Arabic words. The importance of this article is that it offers a glimpse into the frame of mind of many, especially amongst the religious Shiaa people. Note that my comments as translator are enclosed in square bracket []. Dots (….. ) denote parts that I...

    Kenneth Nathaniel Taylor, who founded Tyndale House Publishers after he had been unable to find a company willing to publish his Bible paraphrases, died at age 88 on Friday. Tyndale House is now a leading publisher of Christian books and resources. Taylor's biblical paraphrase, which became The Living Bible, sold more than 40 million copes in North America alone. In 1950, Taylor also founded the Christian Booksellers Association, a trade association of Christian stores, publishers, and other retail companies now known simply as CBA. He also created the missions organizations Evangelical Literature Overseas and Short Terms Abroad When he and...

    Ok Freepers, I need help again!I am bilingual, born in Spain, have lived in the USA for 25 years where I have attended graduate school and received a M.S. in Chemistry and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology. Now, what I would like to do is to start a business as interpreter and translator. I think there's a future for it around here, since we have a large migrant population, many of which stay year around. It would enable me to quit teaching and still contribute to support the family. My problem is I don't know how to go about it....
