By hzhang | Published 03/26/2008 | CAT Tools | Recommendation:
Long ago the world had one language and few words. One day, a group of architects decided to write a manual containing sensitive information on the design of a tower they were building in their city. The tower was to reach the sky and would ultimately determine their greatness. Their pride and confidence took over and they soon ignored their boss. As punishment, their boss scattered the architects across the entire earth and made them all speak different languages. This created much confusion, and so the city was named Babel.

Babel Fish belongs to a larger category of translation called Machine Translation. Machine Translation will give you a rough translation of that German document that's been sitting on your desk baffling you, in less than one minute. How's that for great?
