Today, September 30, is International Translation Day.

In this five-minute video, Tom Scott explains what translators really do, and why machines can’t do it: “...The problem is that language relies on intent, on shared secrets, on group identity, on hidden knowledge....”

The job involves knowing much more than words.

P.S. This is also worth watching: “The Speed of Outrage: Tom Scott at Thinking Digital 2015.”

Things are going to get a lot faster soon. But will they be better? I’m worried.
