Yup...good translation does come down to good interpreters..and so far, good
interpretation is down to human beings with a very good understanding and
perceptions of not only the meanings of the words and phrases of the languages
concerned, but the nuances of diplomacy, the culture, history, general and
particular, and scientific and semantic and vernacular usage of the words, how
the words are said and stressed, the intonation, intention and motivation and
how the sentences are constructed; and, last but not least the grammar. One
also has to contend with the personal knowledge and the level of sophistication
of the participants, and of course their body language, the situation and
context of the exchange. Not an easy task for a computer and software based on
mathematics and algorithms...
A test of computer software translators being to input in English and convert
it to French, and continue translating back the inputs and outputs a few times.
It doesn't take long for gibberish to run riot.😊

These differences are all dependent on the delusional world views of the
persons hearing those words. The language police have failed to come up
with an exact vocabulary to clarify the ideas expressed in everyday
speech. (I suspect that one of the important aspects of all languages is
to make deceptions possible). Human languages are no where as rigorous
and exact as computer languages. Rejoice in our ability to lie to
ourselves and others. It may be the very essence of humanity.

I am confused. Can someone explain to me the difference between an alt

always been different throughout the history of both parties. Is an Alt
lft one of them Marxists, and if so, what branch of them does he/she
belong to, or is there different kinds of Alt Lfts, sort of non-Marxist
alt lfts? Are there Democrat Alt rts and ultra rts and ultra alt lfts.
What kind of Republican is the President...apart from being a bully?
Are soldiers rt lfts, or lft rts?
I have heard that Republicans at various times in history used to
support immigration, ethnic minorities and that Democrats were
Conservatives, is this true?
What is the policy difference between Democrats and Republicans. Do they
publish manifestos for instance?
What is the difference between early modernism, modernism, late
modernism, post modernism and is the next stage to be early futurism,
followed by futurism, middle futurism and past futurism and post
futurism...What is the
status quo called after that?
If you are also as confused as I am...try pressing Ctrl/Alt/Dlt...and go
and watch something entertaining on Netflix...or Youtube...like Mickey
Mouse...I am sure you will learn a lot more...as I did...:-)
Real life always imitates Hollywood...:-) Hollywood art is science
