babelfish saves lives

July 28th, 2006

No, not really. At least no documented cases yet. But it does do wonderfully unexpected things sometimes. Like this "People behind KDE" interview with Belgian developer Olivier Goffart.

Q. Did you go to Akademy in Spain? Will you go to Dublin?

A. I didn't go to Akademy. The main reason is that I don't understand spoken English. I learnt English on IRC and by reading mailing list. (At the beginning i was using Babelfish to translate mailing lists)

Props for the commitment, Olivier!
